Can I get deep smooth warm tone from P pickups?

  1. I have a six string that uses these type of pickups but I wanted nice warm and mellow to also be able to dial in a nice thump. Where should I look?

    6-String P style pickups? I've never seen such an animal. Unless of course it was a P-Bass type winding, stuck in a soap bar shape..... pics?

  4. The pair in the photo are the split hum cancelling type. Whether or not it is similar to a P-bass is open to question. The P-bass has short coils wound on large diameter pole pieces. This compares to a J type which is tall and skinny. Two different animals.
