Hello, not many posts here since I play guitar , but I'm trying to save an old bass guitar and maybe you can help me out. I'm trying to have some tips in a local forum since I wanted to know too where to get what I need, but I'm not getting much help about the pickup. The bass is a cheap Marina 4 string P-bass, bought in the early 90's. I was thinking in restoring it as good as I can, altough I have limited tools and skills, and use it tunned to BEAD and play something along this style: http://www.soundclick.com/bands/default.cfm?bandID=1001111 You can see pictures from the bass in the link below, where you can see the "before" pictures and what I've done so far, which is not much yet. http://s736.photobucket.com/albums/xx7/renato_domingues/Marina%20Bass/ From my limited knowledge of bass gear, I assume that for my style, an humbucker pickup would be more suitable. So I was very surprised to find out that there's a P-shaped humbucker by Dimarzio, the DP127, or split-P, which seems to be a good option. Question is, is it really? And is it really in this bass? Or should I use it just for decoration?
