i have with me a 90's Japanese P Bass. Couple of months back i swapped the stock pups for a set of Quarter Pounders, the added output was great and everything, but after the strings deadened, it didn't give me that vibe anymore, the sound was so dead, it's just not the sound i'm after. what i'm looking for is something that gives me strong bass and clear highs for slapping, popping and tapping. I've played jazz basses and musicmans before and I want my p bass to have the qualities they have without doing any major surgery. I guess for my case, would be to get a built in preamp with new pups. Have been looking at EMGs and DiMarzios, also heard of Bartolinis, quite a number of brands out there. So this it to all you P Bass owners out there who have swapped their pups out, please give me some feedback on the pups you've put in.
