    I've now tried all three of Curtis Novak's main P-bass offerings, and liked this one (PB-V) the best. It has a really nice, natural P tone that is very responsive to right hand dynamics/technique. Sounds great with a pick or finger style. Leads were always (de)soldered, never cut.

    Precision Bass Replacement Pickup

    If you want it I'll throw in a Fender plastic pickup cover... I had to drill out the pole piece holes a little larger to fit a previous pickup, so it's not pretty, but it does the job. The generic/All-parts cover I bought from Curtis did not fit my Fender Hwy 1 pickguard! So this cover is pretty much "guaranteed*" hassle free for Fender installation. Otherwise the pickup will ship bare just as I received it from Curtis Novak.
    *the only guarantees in life are death and taxes. :)

    $85 USD shipped in North America.
    No trades on this one.

    As you can see, the pickup it self is in prime shape. The cover is good from far, but far from good.

    Yeah, it really sounds great! I've just moved on to something else.

    The price from Novak does NOT include any plastic pickup cover at all, so consider my shabby one a free donation with purchase of the pickup. ;)
