I picked up a Johnson P bass from CL for $30. This thing was not taken care of and I am currently stripping the body, that's how bad it was. Prior to doing that, I plugged the bass in and was disappointed by the sound, although I read some good reviews about that bass. How good are the EMG pickups on this bass? I will probably fit new pots and pickups, the idea is just to get a cheap but nice sounding P bass in my arsenal. On a side note, the neck is really really nice. The bridge is total crapula. Thanks!
