    Anyone with experience regarding these?

    The Schecters are newly introduced a while back...

    I have 2 Michael Anthony signature Basses with Monster Tone pickups in them. I Love the MA 78's . The P is amazing. I never use a bridge pickup anyway. I've never seen the pickup your referring to but, I'll be looking into it . I love P pickups with Ceramic magnet's, they seem to have that Low/Mid grind I like.​

    I played a lot of Schecter basses in the 1980s that had "MonsterTone" pickups, and they looked fairly similar to the ones pictured in the OP (although most had a band of copper surrounding the wire, not completely exposed like that pic) and they were excellent pickups. But if those are truly "newly introduced a while back" they might only be similar in appearance.

    Unless "a while back" meant >30 years?

    Of the 2 MA 78's I have neither have the brass baseplates as they came stock in Korean made Michael Anthony Basses. 1 measures 12.9 k and the other is 12.6 k. I actually can tell the difference between them and prefer the 12.6 k. It has slightly more mid-range but both Grind !
    Absolutely the best passive P pickups I've ever used !

    The MA signature pickups are actually copies of his original 79 Schecter P bass, so they are meant to be identical to the OG ones
