    What would be the best pickup for me to put in a fretless P-Bass that has a maple neck?

    I have an EMG P-style active pickup in my fretless P-Bass. I know a lot of people dislike the hi-fi tone of EMG's, however, IMHO it's added clarity really helps the bass cut through, and it still sounds like a P-Bass to me. I'm quite happy with it's sound.
