    Hello, a couple weeks ago, I bought these 71 p pickups for a sweet deal from a TB'er in the classifieds. I'm blown away by the tone here. I installed them in my MIM P, and the instrument came alive! I have sound demos, of course. Strings are couple month old Rotosound Swing Bass stainless steels. Signal chain is Bass -> Seymour Duncan Studio Compressor -> IRIG -> Garageband straight DI
