  1. Which pickup would you recommend/suggest for a Squier P Bass upgrade??? Seymour Duncan? Dimarzio?

    If price is an issue,

    My all time fav is Seymour Duncan SPB-1. IMO,
    it nails the old school P sound (and much better
    than the Ant II)

    Original Fender 62 P bass pickup is a good PU
    also,

    That is difficult and subjective.

    Both those pickups I mention have a kind
    of old school sound that most of us are
    familiar with. If I go farther, it may not be
    well understood.

    The Seymour Duncan SPB-3 Quarter Pound
    P Bass is a little hotter and more trebbly. It's
    real popular with some folks.

    Spb-1 - vintage 60s p
    Spb-2 - vintage hot 60s p
    Spb-3 - hot modern P, lots and lots of low end
    Spb-4 - hot 70's ish kind of pickup, lots of mids and less lows.

    Fender 62- replica of the 60s p bass pickups

    Dimarzio model p- very good pickup, hot, lots of mids, and INCREDIBLY cheap.
