Opinions on 2013 Fender American Standard Precision Pickups?
Any opinions on the "Custom Shop '60s Split Single-Coil Precision Bass Pickups" that come with the Fender 2013 american standard precision?
Yeah, they sound great - best Fender has put out in a long time, IMO...
Still waiting for an intelligent answer as to what differentiates these from OVs, which logically should be identical items.
Think about it.
For about the first twenty minutes, the upgraded pickups were referred to as the OVs. According to some sources, there's nothing actually custom shop about "Custom Shop" pickups anyway, except that they're used in some custom shop instruments. They aren't actually made there.
Been using one in a 2013 Am Standard P I just picked up.
Generally, IMO, it is a pretty well rounded pickup. Gets a pretty good growl with good solid low mid punch. I liked it better than the older pickup Fender used to use (it was a whole other P though). Also an improvment over whatever is in the MIM Standard.
I would love to hear a comparison to the Original '62 if anyone has experience with both.
As for sound differences, hard to say as they're not in the same bass. Would say that the CS are maybe darker, more low end & less treble than the Originals, but this stuff is subtle & subjective at best. Either one sounds great to me.
