    Yes you can, and with moderate soldering skills, it's pretty easy. There's a multitude of brands to choose from with a P design... Seymour Duncan Quarter Pounder's are fairly easy to come by and are probably as good a match as any for your Samick. BTW, your bass is fine to start on!

  3. I started off playing on a Samick, and trust me they are fine to start off on. I am just now getting to the point where I am going to upgrade the pups to get a much brighter tone. I have never done it before, but from what i have heard it is extremly easy. I am planning on maybe putting int two humbuckers, and doing any extra routing that might be required. Anyone know how hard that will be?
