MM pup in an SX P, why not?

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by ColoradoBass, Mar 19, 2008.

  1. So its time for me to start modding my SX p bass and Im wondering what a mm style pup would sound like in the same position as the p pups. Any thoughts?
  2. It will sound like a humbucker in the P-position :D

    seriously, it will..it will sound like a P on 'roids...it will have more fundimental and roundness in tone than a MM (less harmonic content), but will sound less "hollow" than a P-pickup and depending on your coil setting (parallel or series) will de-emphasize or emphasize (respectively) the lower mids.

    Just so you know, the classic MM position is JUST behind the P-position and you can actually squeeze it in there (space of about 1/4" between routings)...
