I've always wondered what the difference was from a 60's P-Bass pickup and a 70's P-Bass pickup. Forever have I tried to get that 70's P-Bass pickup sound, and I wanted to know your opinions of whether they used different specs for the Fender P-Bass pickup in the 70's, or if it was the same thing as they were producing in the 60's and I'm crazy. To me the 70's P-Basses have always had a "nastier" type of midrange kind of sound. Most of my favorite rock P-Bass sounds have been guys using 70's P-Basses stock. Think of the P-bass sounds of guys like Roger Waters/Pink Floyd, JJ Burnel/The Stranglers, Paul Simonon/The Clash, Denny Laine/Wings (when Paul played piano) - that P-Bass sound. Anybody know what was different about the P-Bass pickup produced during the 1970's?
