    I'm getting a lot of single coil hum from my custom made '54 P-Bass. I know I can always try to turn toward Mecca to reduce the noise but is there a good sounding hum-cancelling pickup to drop into the '54 single coil hole? I think Seymour Duncan makes one. Does anybody have experience with that one?

    Sure do and it's nice and quiet, gobs of tone, with great clarity.

    No experience with that pu, but Sting uses vintage sounding bassline humbuckers in his old p-basses, and I think he knows what he is doing...;-)
