    Versus split coil pickup, I do notice it doesn't bring the same authority in upper registers. EQ fiddling, which I don't like to do a lot, could be the charm. Thoughts?

    In the mid-late 70's I played a 64 P with Rotosounds into an SVT. When I needed to refret it, I found a 68 Tele bass. I strung it with Rotosounds.

    My hard rock band was loud and my P bass cut through nicely. My Jazz bass cut through. My Ripper didn't...it just got lost.

    The Tele bass punched as well as my P. The placement of the pickup made up for the low end punch that might have been missing if it were closer to the bridge.

    It sat well in the mix. It actually was very close to the P.
  7. Dusty Hill seems to be doing OK with his.
