78 Precision Pickup Issue/Needed
I recently bought a 78 P bass and was always a little suspicious about its low output. As it turns out, one of the pickups (from the pair) is dead. (Note: I found it weird that even though one of the pickups was dead, when they were wired together both seemed to work at half output - and the good pickup on its own gave me full output!)
Anyhow, I am very keen on keeping this thing original. So I have a few questions.
1. Should I just get one of the two rewound?
2. Given its a 78, from what 70's year range could I replace it with?
3. Would Fender Custom shop P-Bass be the most worthy/genuine pickup replacement (thinking resale in future too)
4. Do any of you guys have any for sale?
P.S. I live in Melbourne, Australia
P.SS. I also managed to break the tone capacitor in my travels...but lets not go there yet...
