    Is it possible to get a noise free (hum/hiss) output (even with tone at max) with this pickups?
    Fender Original Precision Bass
    Lindy Fralin P
    Nordstrand P

    P.S. Is there any difference between the Fender Original and the '62 Fender pickup??

    They are all humbucking and should be noise free. I have a Fender original in one bass and a Nordstrand P in another and they are both noise free.

    The P bass pickups are humbucking because of the design-the two halves are reverse wound and reverse magnet polarity. If you get noise from them the problem is in your bass, such as lack of shielding, improper grounding, etc. That's the first thing you should check out.
