    "Everything you want in a P pickup!"
    Build Quality:
    Pros - Classic sound with a little added punch and clarity.
    This pickup was included in a used bass I purchased and was my first Nordstrand experience and quickly sold me on Carey Nordstrand's products!

    The NP4 has a classic look -- matte black plastic covers and four exposed polepieces per half. Unlike many pickup makers who plaster their name/logo on the cover so you can't miss them, the folks at Nordstrand opt for a nice embossed/molded "N". It's subtle and barely noticeable from afar. This is a great bonus for those who are wanting to maintain that unmodified look. Thank you, boys!

    Nordstrand didn't try to re-invent the P pickup with the NP4, just make it better. It delivers that familiar classic full, punchy tone and with the help of the Alnico V magnets, it does it with just a little more "oomph." Note: Alnico III magnets are also available for those seeking a more traditional tone.

    This pickup is guaranteed a wide variety of P players. Go give one a spin today!
    Price Paid:
