    I have alway preferred a "scooped midrange" I recently purchaced an early 90's Fender Mexican P J bass that the actives had been removed. I want to change out the pickups that are in it because they are very week and Midrangy. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for a passive PJ set with higher output but a scooped Midrange?

    OMG Dont butcher that bass!

    I played one once in a shop in Boston and I loved the tone of those pickups and preamp!

    Send me the electronics if you dont want them!

    Oh and BTW, Seymour Duncan Quater Pound pikcups are supposed to be very mid scooped. I hate em though.

    I love mids!

    Peace

    I got the bass cheep because someone had taken out all the active electronics including the concentric Knobs.
