    I will probably have a luthier build me a new bass. It's Saki Stevenson at http://www.stevensonguitars.com (The bass link is not working).
    I really love the sound of my 4 string Pbass and I would like to have a very similar sound in a 5 string. Since I would like something that sound as close as my Pbass as possible i was thinking:
    Maple neck
    Ebony fingerboard
    alder body
    passive electronic
    P/J pickup configuration

    So, i was wondering what kind of pickup would give me a good P bass sound in a five string?
    Bart soapbar?
    Bart P model?
    Some other king of P pickup I don't know about?

    Also I was wondering if I should get active electronic and a passive tone control?

    All input are welcome!!
  2. If you ask a mod to move this to the Pickup forum, you'll have a beeter chance of getting some answers!

    There are many companies that make 5 string P pickups.

    Go to the pickup forum and do some reasearch!
