    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.

  2. Sounds like he EQ'd it for more bass and mids. He probably does have an American though. Find a used Am. P-Bass pickup on Ebay. Should run about 60 bucks. Oh, and replace the capacitor in your electronics.
