    Hi ya'll,

    I remember reading a review of Seymour Duncan SPB-2 pickups saying that they are much slimmer in height than Fender PU's. Does anybody know whether Fender has ever manufactured their P-bass PU's with same dimensions as the SPB-2? The '86 MIJ Fender P-bass I bought on eBay three weeks ago was supposed to have 'original' pickups, but after measuring them I found them to have the exact dimensions of the SD replacements (there was also some additional foam under the PU's, and still not even enough of it..) They sound great (thump-a-thump!) but I'd just like to know what I got. I checked the Fender site but couldn't find any dimension specs for their P-bass PU replacements ..

    Any help will be highly appreciated,
