  4. Hey everyone,
    I thought it was time to join the club. I'll get some photos up soon. I have a 2001 50th anniversary P-Bass witch I've armed with Labella flats. Blonde, maple fretboard. Great bass!
    Can I have a club membership number please?

    :bassist:

    cheers,
    BB

    Thanks much man! This is definitley one of my favorites I've ever played. In fact it's my exclusive Pbass! I can't figure it out either. To me it seems to be the ideal mix of Fender features all in one instrument. Someday I can see myself getting a White/Maple American just for the look though.:p

    Thoughts and ideas for p bass replacement pick ups , I bought this bass from a good friend ( 1973 ) it has active emg's in it and from what I am told there is a battrie under the pick guard , I have not removed it yet but dont want the hassle so if there is one it is leaving and some new passive pickups are going in ,

    I personally like DiMarzio Split P's. Very clear, articulate, and aggressive. And they're pretty much noise-free due to their double-humbucking nature.

    Depends on the sound you want -

    Duncan Vintage
    - nice vintage tone, slightly enhanced
    Duncan Antiquity - pure vintage tone
    Nordstrand NP4 - Vintage-y with extended bass and a touch more high end
    Lollar - Vintage on steroids
    Tonerider - Vintage with some nice "bark" to it
    DiMarzio - lotsa grind without being "distorted".
    Fender Original - Nice sounding, but not really "vintage-y" to my ears - nice pickup though.

    thanks , that send's me in a good direction , I was thinking of Sadowsky's , I have one of his jazz basses and love the pickups , they are made by Dimarzio I think , I appreciate the help , I have never had a P bass and am really loving this bass

    Yep, the Sadies are manufactured by DiMarzio IIRC - nice pickups, a bit more modern without sounding "too" hi-fi IMO...at least with the P Bass pickups. The J's are definitely more hi-fi.

    Oh, BTW - If your bass is heavy, you will shed nearly half a pound by changing from the Badass to a vintage style guard. I just took one off a bass and I saved 7 oz.

    I'm more a fan of the vintage style bridges anyway though.

    :)

    So Dark, you think Antiquities are best for pure old school?

    Hmm.. I might need some of those.

    They're about as good as you'll find for getting old school "non-hyped" sound. Side by side with my 64 they are very, very close.
