    Does anyone have suggestions for the pickup with best low end response? What pickup would you recommend for a fat, warm, bassy tone?

    If there was one single pickup that was unanimously considered "the best", all the competing manufacturers would be out of business.

    I understand your point, but that doesn't help answer my question. Some pickups are known for clarity, some for punch, and so on. I just want some suggestions for pickups with a good full bass tone. Thanks.

    g - here's a "bass builder" who recognizes the Lace Sensors and Ken Smiths as pups which emphasize "deep" qualities www.kingbass.com/pickups.html

    However, the onboards seem to be an essential component as well.
