    So its time to bite the bullet and get another Pbass.

    I have a SX jazz, i like the construction, but how about the pups in the P?

    the jazz pups were pretty decent, but with the P, how much can you get down and low with em?

    The stock pickups in the SX P-Bass are decent. I currently have my 4 string tuned B-E-A-D and the response is clear.

    My SX jazz rocks..good growl and hot pups.The P i ordered just never pleased my ear at all. I tried duncan Performers (junk) and rewired the guts and it got a bit better...its for sale now...but i have never been a P bass fan .fender what ever never dug their tone...I'm a jazz guy but thought for 120.00 what the heck...I love SX's but the P for me was not good ....great build thou.
