    I have a squier P which I had to put some very tame sounding johnson EMGs into.I already have a P with quarter pounders and want something with a different sound for the same price or less,but I still want a hot sound.I might be able to spend a little more coin for something really special.

    edit:50-80 dollar budget,this is still a squier were talking about here.

    I got a set of DiMarzio Model Ps, too, after trying almost a dozen different pups, some costing three times as much. The Model Ps are quite hot (6 "hours" hotter in gain vs. stock), and have a really nice midrange punch. Great pups, I am done GASsing in that respect.

    How about Seymour Duncan SBP-2 Hot pickups?
    They are more "traditional" p-pickups than QP's and have high output!

    Rio Grande, Muy Grande's. They are more expensive, but they are just as hot as the SPB-3, but they sound fantastic.

    I have hot GFS pups in my Squier P. Sounds like a P, they don't feel especially "hot"

    Why would you need to route? You don't have a P pickup now?

    that looks like a big-ass humbucker for the neck position,correct? iif not then is it two little humbuckers?

    edit:I'm a dumbass and looked at the neck pup.

    That's what I was going to say. The big bonus is you kind of have your own sound because so few use them.

    I have them in my one of my Fender P basses and they are excellent.
    Very hot, growly and NO clank.

    I like them so much I bought another set for my Fender Modern Player Jaguar
