P Bass pickup for fretless

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by ipodeloc, Aug 6, 2002.


  1. Hello,

    I have a Yamaha RBX 260 fretless, that I bought to wait for my Marleaux Fretless (coming in 6 months).
    I find surprisingly good this little Yam', very easy to play, but I may change the pickup.

    I was interested in the Di-Marzio Split-P, but I don't really know which pickup would suit the best. Di-Marzio says the Split-P is good for fretless, but I wonder who makes the best "all purpose" precision pickup (Seymour, EMG, Di-Marzio ...).

    I just completed my Essex fretless P upgrade with a Badass Bridge and tortoise p/g as well as a Basslines Quarter Pounder. It sounds great. The good thing about the quarter pounder is that you can roll back the volume and/or the tone and not lose tone or dynamics. I am pleased with the pickup for the $60 I payed new.
