I picked up a Player Series P bass a few weeks ago. I love the way it plays and it is super lightweight which I also dig. Only thing was the tone was a little too vintage voiced for my taste. So I was looking for a new pickup and I remembered the MIM standard pickups to be hotter with more bottom and a tighter dynamic range. I figured low risk, high reward experiment. I recalled they always sounded good on the Standard p basses. Just finished dropping one into my Player P and OMG does it sound so much better than the alnico pickup that was in there, to me anyway. full, punchy, and aggressive. Now it you love a vintage p bass sound this move is probably not for you but if your looking to get a more modern tone for not a lot of money, out of the really well made player p bass, give it a try.
