  2. I just bought myself the same set of pickups (in white) from a dealer in Australia for $150. I tried to buy them direct from the USA dealers but none of them post to Aust. A shame as I could have saved myself $50. The DP127's will replace the stock pups in my re-vamped Ibanez Destroyer.
    Why, if at all should you or would you replace the stock pickups you ask?
    Because budget priced instruments often come with budget priced components. That's not always true but the MIM Fender P is IMHO a budget bass with budget components. The pups are a bit ordinary when compared with the DP127's.
    If you are going to upgrade the pickups can I also suggest you upgraded the capacitor on the tone pot as well. I'm a fan or orange drop caps and oil filled caps, but there are others on the market so ask around.
