    Im considering putting a Villex pup in my P-bass.
    I want a tighter foller sound. Will the Villex do that?
    Are they shipped with pots?
    How much is Villex a P-bass pickup?
    Are they worth it?

    Villex pickups are great, full range high output sound.

    They ship with the 50K mid pot, you have to supply the 500K volume pot. Can't remember if they ship with tone pot or not.

    That's something you might want to consider, your P bass probably only has two knobs and you'll need three for the Villex (vol/mid/tone). You could use a stacked 500K pot for vol/tone I guess.

    As for price, email Mr Villex at tovillex@aol.com - he's generally pretty fast at responding.

    I sent him a mail.
    A stacked pot is a great idea BTW.
