Pickups for my MIM P-Bass

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by Honk'n_down-low, Sep 27, 2008.


  1. Looking for opinions on what to put in my MIM P-Bass. The stock pups don't sound bad - but I have heard there are better.

    I picked this Bass up from Troyus here on TB - nice P-Bass - I had been missing having a P since selling my 1966 back in the late 80's.

    I am inclined and leaning toward putting the Fender 62 P-Bass Pups in as I have heard good things here from fellow TB'ers and they are priced right.

    I would interested in knowing what people here have chosen and why.

    I am not looking for anything specific - I use the P-Bass for Old School Thumping - but don't want to limit the selection to one style. I play through a LMII and a GK800RB using a 4x10 and 15.

    Here's a pic of the Bass and the Rig I use. Thanks!

    I went through a bunch and have stuck with the SD SPB-1. Seems like we're after a similar sound from the P...I didn't try any Fender pickups so I can't compare to them.
     
  3. Thanks, what type of P did you put the Duncan in?
     
  4. I have the spb3 basslines... I found the mids gone! Gone! sounds really good in my room though.

    i dropped a Fralin in my Highway One P, & it's the schnitz :hyper: ( besides, that's what Lakland puts in their Duck Dunn,, & i figure if it's good enough for Duck Dunn,, it's good enough for me ) :bassist::bassist::bassist:

    i play rock & blues ( with the P ), & i'm highly impressed with the tone of the Fralins / TI flats
