Here's the story: I ordered a custom PM5 at Sandberg in late October 2007: ash body with maple neck, painted in high gloss Lake Placid Blue. After some major delay at the finishing facility it arrived yesterday. Let me just say that I don't want to bash Sandberg for this. Anyway, the construction, workmanship and finishing is great. It has Sandberg (Delano generic) P and MM PUs with Ceramic/Steel magnets. But I don't like the sound of these PUs and even my bandmates commented last night that my passive DJ5 w. Aero single coils had more low mid punch. Now, what I am looking for is the low mid grunt I find in all my ALNICO PU/ash/maple equipped basses. Question: Who makes good ALNICO 5 sring P and MM PUs? Nordstrand? I didn't see a P5 on his website, although Nino seems to be using them in his basses. Who else?
