Hullo, I have a nice black Fender MIM P-bass, and I am going to change the pick guard (boring white), knobs (strat knobs?? - c'monnn!) and most importantly, the pickup. It just sounds too hollow and electronic right now. I have settled on passive, since I don't want to route or have to unscrew the pick guard on a poplar body more than a couple of times. The choices are narrowed down to any of the three Seymour Duncan SPB or antiquity series, or perhaps a Fender antiquity pickup of some sort. I want the pickup to be a good general performer, but mostly suited to 70's funk, and perhaps some chili-peppers style stuff. Another thing (and perhaps most importantly): I got to try out a real 1965 Fender p-bass the other day, and it sounded like a giant kettle drum going off whenever I plucked a string. It made my skull vibrate and left me grinning from ear to ear. I was stunned and amazed that such a beat up old hunk of wood could sound so sweet. Would one of these pickups get me close to that sound? Which one?
