    I´m thinking of trying a different pickup in my Fender MIJ 70´s P. I A/B:ed it against a Rickenbacker 4001 on our last rehersal and the Rick had such a great note definition (no mud).
    What is there to get better clarity/definition and less boom without loosing that woody P-sound?

    I have the DiMarzio P replacment pup, and I love it. It has a nice midrangey sound that I would consider in no way to be boomy.

    I think that´s what this bass has stock.

    How about a Bill Lawrence P-46?

    G&L MFD split-coil check with Tim @ Buffalo Brothers for price (very reasonable) or a local G&L dealer.

    Very high output, more bass, more treble, more clarity & growl. Not a "vintage P" sound but if you are after more Rick and less P then it might be right up your alley.
