    I put this in a maple neck p-bass and overall, I do like it best. I have had/have Nordstrand NP-4, Fender RI 62, Fender 50's, Seymour Duncan in three (two Rosewood and one maple neck) P-basses. All of the other pups sound good and are nice choices for sure! However; for a maple neck P-bass, I really like the Bare Knuckle 58' a little more than the other crowd. What I really dig is that it sounds good w/tone all the way up (which maple necks can sound a tad brittle /brashy/honky w/ tone100% up) to all the way down to less than halfway on the tone knob. However; I don't quite like BK P-58 pups w/tone all the way down it gets a bit too (for me) indistinct sounding. The other pups can sound good w/tone all the way down. The Nordstrand= my fav. for Rosewood necks for that good hollow sound. Anyway, just letting you know my 1-1/2 cents worth- hope it helps someone w/future choice.
