I have a P bass I bought new last year. it's the regular standard model that used to sell new last year for $429.00. I like it but it sounds thinner than my friends P bass that he bought several years ago. I'm not sure which model his is I know it came stock with thru the body strings/bridge. I think his might be American - maybe, maybe not. What pick ups would give me a fuller, deeper sound. Here is a link to a video of my friend's bass - you can see and hear it. Thanks!
