    I think I already know the answer, but there's no way to buy lakland p bass pickups alone is there? I think it's time for a change from Seymour Duncans, looking for a new sound. If the lakland pickups are a no go, can anyone recommend replacement pickups just like them? I love laklands but I can't afford that right now. College debts sucks.

    I am almost sure that you can directly order them from Lakland.

    If you can't get the Lakland P (which I'm pretty sure you can), try the Nordstrand Np4 or the Fralin P-Bass Pickup. Both of them are superb.
     
  4. you can order the lakland p-bass pickup or any other lakland pickup directly.

    the p-bass pickup is roughly $200, and woth every penny. the best p-bass pickup ive ever heard.

    They emailed me back, apparently a company called Hanson makes Lakland pickups. $200+shipping. Saving up starting...now.

    I don't know if I'd pay $200 for the pickup. Try out a Nordstrand NP4. Someone in the classifieds has one for sale. They are selling it for $85. NO RELATION TO SELLER AT ALL...

    In general Nordstrands are a bit more modern sounding and Fralins are pretty accurately vintage sounding pickups.
     
  15. i cant speak for the p pickups but in using the j pickups from the above makers, i wouldnt describe them like that at all.
