  1. I have a set of DiMarzio model P pickups waiting to go in my bass. Sounds normal? I is a '77-'79 pickup. Does this make it vintage? Is it rare?

    They are not rare at all.

    DiMarzio still makes that pickup. http://www.dimarzio.com/model_p.html It was one of the early DiMarzio models that set off the whole pickup upgrade revolution.

    In addition to all the pickups that were swapped out, that model was factory standard in basses from many makers: Kramer, B.C. Rich, Hondo, S.D. Curlee, etc.
