    I have a Squier Vista MM bass and the pickup sounds great. I'm working on a full scale '54 P build and would love to replicate the tone of this pickup - anybody got any information on them? I have never looked under the hood on this bass so unsure of whether its cloth wire, the measured output etc. The polepieces look larger than normal but it captures a really nice tone that does not scream modern or high output. With the same amp settings and the instrument volume maxed and the tone rolled completely off I compared it to my Road Worn P bass, My P bass with a 1970's PAF Dimarzio Model P and the output was more like the Dimarzio - a little hotter than the Road Worn and the tone was also more similar to the Dimarzio.
