    I'm going to be buying an Essex P-bass soon and I'm thinking of replacing the pick-up with a Seymour Duncan basslines. I'm just wondering which one should I go for? I heard one of the models has scooped mids I don't want that. Any help is much appreciated.
     
  2. The Quarter Pounder doesn't so much have scooped mids, as it does huge bass and treble. But yeah, that's the one you don't want. The Hot one has a lot of extra bass. I'm not sure about the Vintage. I believe it's standard P-bass tone, but better, with more output.
     
  3. I have a Fender "Original" P-bass pickup in my D-Bass Precision clone and I really like it. It has that vintage P-Bass thickness and thump.
