Old style Fender bass sound!

Phil3994, 20.12.2015
I purchased these pickups from Thomann at a great price.

I do a fair amount of studio session work and I was looking for a deeper old style 60's tone.

I put these pickups in a fender custom shop PJ bass and they sound great!
Authentic 60's tone.. they are much more bassy in tone than standard fender pickups, which I liked a lot.

Good volume level output, as some old style pickups have to be cranked full up to bite!

Overall they are a great quality upgrade for any fender Pbass.

Sound gain for Squier Precision Bass

DocR, 03.03.2015
Many thanks to the Thomann-staff in the guitars / bass department, who explained to me in Treppendorf the differences of the three Fender Vintage Precision-Bass pickups in the Thomann catalog. The information on the Thomann website is not definitively conclusive.

The choice is a lot because of the slightly higher output power (12 kOhm) then the 63P bass PU, which has found its place in a Classic Vibe 60s Squier Precision Bass. The pickup costs roughly 1/4 of the price of the bass, but the substance of Squier is so good that I've done this luxury. Reason was the in my view somewhat low output signal of the Squier. One could live well with the serientonabnehmer, but tinkering is fun and a little more signal can not hurt.

When disassembling the Squier bass much the same to me, where the price difference comes from. The original pickup does not have a base plate like the Fender pickups, after loosening the 4 screws one has the two pickup halves and the covers in the hand. The concern that the base plate of the 63 P-Bass PU could not fit into the Squier's milling has not been true. I had slight problems with the pickguard, however, since the originals were closer together. A small file insert has helped.

The result of the conversion, in which synonymous the scratching original volume potentiometer exchanged for a higher quality part is convincing for me. The 63 P-Bass PU delivers a more powerful signal and still sounds slightly more open. You have to adjust the pickup but relatively high. I'm not looking for a "wire slap sound", playing even ground strings on my bass, but I have the impression that the Fender 63 P-Bass Pickup has brought a significant improvement without the consciously chosen "old-fashioned" character of the bass distort.

The Fender Precision pickups are quite expensive, but if the now 30 years holds the price is forgotten soon.
