Anybody have any good advice on how to get a good growly tone with P/J pickups. It feels to me like you need humbuckers for a growly midrange tone cuz when i use both my pickups at the same time, it always sounds like there is some sort of scoop. They're Seymour Duncan Quarter Pound pickups if that helps.

IF I recall SD QP's are voiced like that. Their geared for what is called a "modern" tone (which is B.S imo) Have you boosted the mids? You could try stainless strings, but if I were you, I would swap for a Dimarzio Ultra Jazz or an Area J.

The QP's are voiced with a slight mid scoope .

I recommend getting a set of SD Lightnin' Rods for the growly tone.
Damn it! Disable can't use disable to disable Disable's disable because disable's disable has already been disabled by Disable's disable!

How would the tone change with the QPs and some stainless steel (Rotosound Swing 66s for example) strings?? This interests me greatly too.

I get quite the growly tone with my P/J...


Here's with my power-pop band playing a Go-Go's song for the first time... nothing fancy, playing-wise, but it's a fairly growly p/j tone:
