  2. If you buy one this install instructions are right in the box.

    Its a great P bass pick up. Used by alot of pbass players and is usually a great add on to any instrument.


    To install

    Remove or really looses strings

    1) remove pick guard

    2) remove 4 screws holding pick up in to body

    3) Solder the old wires off and put the new ones on.

    4) Reassemble and adjust pickup height to specs or taste.

    Usually takes less then an hour if your good with a soldering iron.

    If not practice first on some wire or something, its not to hard to get the hang of
