    Ran a search, found nothing. Anyone familiar with these:

    If I had all kinds of extra cash, I'd buy them just because they look cool! But, of course, I don't, sooo...

    Just curious if anyone has any experience with them. I've always enjoyed the simple little SPB-1, so the Phats may not be up my alley at all.

    A bass oriented variation of the old P90 staple pickups SD makes a reproduction of?

    This Custom Shop piece is a hit with some touring artists who like a variation on the traditional P Bass vibe. It's a bit clearer sounding without as much roundness. It plays great in a live mix. Good cut.
    Yeah, we do need some demoz on it.

    I have such a set for guitar.

    They are awesome. They aren't at all like P90s. P90s have bar magnets on the bottom and passive polepieces. These have active rods like Fender pickups, but the rods are much longer. And they still have the larger diameter coil.
