    Thinking of swapping pickups on my MIM P bass. Want a nice strong P bass tone for rock prog etc...I have lots of pedals for grit and grind etc.
    Thinking of:

    Model P
    SPB-1
    Fender 62 Original
    Fralin or Lollar or Wilde

    What would give me a really great sound for what I play? I love Geddy, Eantwhistle, Squire etc...want to make my own sound but based on those guys tone, which I love...but with my P bass...

    Which pickups? One of those, or something else?

    I'd throw the Wilde P-46 into that mix.

    SPB-1 for me BUT 62 is great too! Especially if using effects...

    Model P OR check out the SPB-4 by Seymour duncan. I know its a signature pickup, but its a very hot midrangey pickup that is perfect for what you are describing. I had the SPB-4 and it was a fantastic pickup for those kinds of sounds.
