    Got this off TB back in the summer but never used it. Decided to have MJT build me a heavy relic body and this pickup looks too new.

    Your $60 PayPal payment gets it shipped via USPS Priority Mail to your lower 48th US state.

    This Hanson NeoPunch p-bass pickup is really awesome, sounding very punchy although still sort of silky when playing normally - for they apparently retain the alnico character of the base double rods/magnets - yet becoming really growly as you dig in because of the high output & somewhat self-saturating characteristic due to the strong neodymium magnets underneath the rods. Yes indeed, and without the rather annoying harshness of a typical ceramic bar pickup such as the DiMarzio DP122. I would say this NeoPunch pickup is absolutely perfect for "waking up" slightly lame sounding / low resonance wood basses (for instance, I have a franken p-bass with a body made of zebrano that I always found sounding a bit dull and it sounds really good with this NeoPunch pickup) - or else - mitigating the typically hard wood basses such as some Japanese (Matsumoku Vantage for example) overly hard sounding with the (to me horrible) caramic bar pickups they often come with.
    I'm wondering why they stopped making 'em and really recommend Hanson or other pickup makers to issue neodymium boosted j-bass pickups, for I often find j-basses lacking a bit of punch unless you really push them with high gain, at least in comparison to the p-bass...
