  2. Great clips! Pickup position is such a huge factor in how a bass sounds, this is an excellent example of that, with all else being equal. :cool:
  3. Hey, it's really cool if you open all four sound clips and play them all at once! Killer.

    Someone should make a bass with four P bass pickups in it. That would sound killer...

    I think Lee Sklar's old beater bass has EMG's in the neck and bridge position. Killer.

    Very nifty! I especially like the conventional spot but the musicman position sounds great as well.
    Not too crazy about his Tribute and Trinity body shapes.

    Best regards,

    My P never sounds like any of those samples, which is fine with me. i like a much rounder and warmer sound. But, yes, you can hear the differences pickup placement makes.

    Dingwall basses with FD pickups are actually P-shaped coils in a soapbar housing

    Now if he had different pickup options that would be great. I'd love to hear a musicman pickup in the P position.
