    Hello all, I own a Electra phoenix bass with swamp ash body, maple neck and fretboard. Looking to change out the pickups. What passive pickups go best with a "woody" bass? Im trying to find something that has serious punch while not overkilling on the high tones. would like a darker thudding bass sound. any help is appreciated, thanks

    I installed a G&L SB-1 P pickup into my Franken P. Bought it from a talkbass member. Just punch your eyes and with my new strings, the tone is clear and I can even get a piano overtone from it. The strings are DR Jonas Hellborg's.

    If you search the forum you will find a lot of comments on the G&L P bass pups.
