    Just picked up a Fender '51 Precision Bass RI. It has the single coil neck pickup. Not a bad sounding pickup but I'm always searching. I was looking at the Seymour-Duncan sight and they have several to choose from. Anyone here have any suggestions or experience?

    Look at Curtis Novak or Jason Lollar. IMHO they do the vintage thing really well as well as complete customs. Novak even has a humcancelling single coil P design. looks pretty cool. Expensive though.

    I have a set of those arriving today for my Modulus necked custom P-Bass. Can't wait to see if they tame the carbon fiber a little bit. I'll have to think it over long and hard before I go routing out the '51.
