    Got a spare 08 Fender Highway One pickup just collecting dust. Has anyone done this? Would this be a good mod for a Squier P?
     
  2. Replacing the current pickup with the one from your highway one?
    Probably, I think the highway ones came with US 60s p-bass pickups.
     
  3. If you are indeed talking about the VM Precision, I personally wouldn't bother, the Duncan designed VM PPickup is excellent as is , IMO.

    Yeah. Thinking of replacing the pickup on my Squier Precision with one from a HWOne P. Basically, my question is:

    Is the pickup on Highway One P better than the pickup on Squier P?
     
  5. Put it in an SX instead.

    if its just sitting around why not? its not like its getting any use just sitting there and if you dont like it its not hard to swap out
     
  8. Route the squier and use BOTH.

    Sorry, someone had to say it.

    I put my Highway One pickup in a Mexican body/Mighty Mite neck project and the pickup sounds incredible with some 500ks. The bass sounds better than most standard USA Ps.
     
  11. I would. It's just a Squier. That's the cool thing about cheaper basses. They make great learning platforms and you can do crazy stuff to them without destroying an expensive instrument.
