    I can't find anyone that really knows the difference between fender's '62 p-bass reissue pickup and just the fender replacement p-bass pickup. Does anyone know any differences at all or have played on either of them??? The only difference i can find is that the reissue costs $5 more! I hope that extra 5 bucks isnt just because it says "reissue" on the plastic case. :eek:

    Are they both hand-wound in America? I heard that pickups that are, typically have a better tone. I dont know if thats true or not.

    Thanks ahead of time
