    I am going to do up my Rbx374 i was thinking about putting in the following pups.




    Its s 97-98 model its got a PJ config with alder body,maple neck with rosewood board.

    Does anyone see any problems with that setup or choice of pups?
    Or does anyone have any better ideas?

    I don't see any problems as long as the pickups fit. I haven't checked that but I expect they would. I like SD Basslines pickups. I use the Quarter Pounder P myself. I've tried a bass or two with the Hot models and liked them too but personally favour the Quarter Pounder.

    ok cool thanks

    Does the 1/4 pounder hum alot or is it a quite pickup.
    I have read that it can be a bit noisy.

    Also how much diffrent is it compared to the Hot pups

    I have no hum with the Quarter Pounder P pickup. The J style Quarter Pounder is a single coil so will pick up some noise like all single coils. I haven't heard that they are more so than other brands.

    SD also makes hum cancelling J style pickups that might be better for the bridge position if noise is a problem. The P pickup is no problem as it's a humbucking design.

    To my ears the Quarter Pounder (the P at least) has a little more going on in the midrange while the hot seems a bit more scooped in the middle. I haven't got any to A-B. That's just my recollection. They're both very good pickups.
