    I was considering replacing the pickups in my MIA P bass with the SD SPB-2 after reading some very positive comments about them.

    Does anyone have any experience with both of these? I know the Fender pup is pretty solid but am curious as to how the SD pup compares to it tonally. Any insight would be appreciated.

    FWIW:

    You might read the Dimento P experiment in this forum (glad I did). So much for memory.

    Regardless, for balance, blend, and flexibility, good Fender P's hard to beat. Probably the most recorded bass sound in history.
