    Hello guys!

    I'm planning on buying a MIM Deluxe P Bass, and I was wondering, is it worth it to upgrade the pickups? The stock ones are a Vintage Noiseless Jazz Bridge pickup and a Vintage P style pickup. I was thinking of upgrading the P style with something from Aguilar or Seymour Duncan (I play mostly rock/metal), and leave the Noiseless Jazz as it is. Also, how good is the active circuit? Is it worth it to also upgrade to a OBP 3 or maybe a Tone Capsule from Darkglass?

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks!

    I'd go for it

    Though I'd try th nordstrand p blades along with the darkglass pre
    I'd also route for a musicman in the bridge instead to use that

    Haha I think thats kind of overkill, but incredible! Another of my fears is that if I put a hot output precision pickup, it will totally cover the Fender noiseless jazz pickup. I will check the p blades.
