    Does anyone have any experience with the Seymour Duncan SPB-4 Steve Harris P pick-ups? I haven't heard much about these, yet everyone raves about the EMG GZR Geezer Butler pick-ups so I'm wondering if they're newer or less known about or if they just arn't very good. Just wondering.

    Thanks! After listening to both I think I like the GZR better..but still might have to get the Harris to stash away for later...although now I'm thinking if the output are close enough I could use the GZR in the neck and the Harris at the bridge in a double P set-up, right?

    That should work though we never know until we try.

    What I like about the GZR is that in a band setting I can hear it better than just about any other P bass pickup I've tried.

    Is SPB-4 Pickup suitable for vintage stuff such as:

    70s, Motown, Blues, James Jamerson, Mel Schacher tones?

    Or is it too hot and aggresive for those?

    I'd say it is too hot. I'd stick with more vintage-output options, like the SPB-1 for that.
