Replacement P-bass pickup for active bass
There is a lot of enthusiasm around Talkbass for replacement P-bass pickups (Seymour Duncan, Bill Lawrence, Nordstrand, etc.) and I am curious to try one of these on my Fender MIA Precision Deluxe (2005). I have to admit to thinking about this when I hear about pickups that emulate a vintage (early) P-bass sound. The 2005 pickup delivers a pretty "hot" tone.
Of course, I invite anyone to advise if this is not going to make much of a difference, given the relative quality of the stock pickup. Fender customer relations couldn't tell me much in detail about the stock p-up.
But my main question is -- does the fact it is an active bass limit my choices of replacement pickup? Or can any pickup be swapped in and function without any issues?
Thanks for your input.
