    Hi Everyone,

    Happy to be on TB after realizing the awesomeness of BASS. Longtime TGP member and gear head but just getting my bearings on classic bass pickups. As always, I usually do a thorough search before asking these questions and starting a redundant thread wasting people’s time, but strangely I can’t find anything that answers the following:

    what are the tonal differences between all the pickup options from Fender for a P bass, specifically between:

    -‘57 variant
    -‘59 variant
    -60’s variant
    -‘62 variant
    -‘63 variant
    -the ‘65-‘70 option on some CS models
