    I've got a fretless SX P-bass style that I'd like to replace the pickups with some a little bit better. I'd like to stick to passive pickups. btw, I don't need the best pickups on the market just some to upgrade the current ones a little bit.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Have a look at the Pickups FAQ at the top of this forum...

    There is a thread you might be interested in, P-pup shootout thread:

    Thanks! Sorry for starting another thread.....I just wasn't sure if a fretless would sound better with certain pickups or not.

    I've got the same bass, (Well, maybe not the same... but a fretless SX P) and I threw a Bartolini 8CBS into it.

    I'm quite pleased. It's big and thick, but not too muddy.
