I love this pickup
Kaergbo, 30.08.2017
This was my first pick up replacement. I replaced the stock pickup in my old Warwick PJ with the SPB-3.
Seymour Duncan includes a manual with the electronic schematics for this pickup, which made the installation a lot easier. These pickups are meant to be a drop in replacement for any Fender P or PJ bass. In my case, the replacement wasn't exactly 'drop in', as Warwick uses other dimensions, materials, and designs than Fender. Especially their use of a spring instead of foam underneath the pickup made this a little bit challenging.

The sound however, makes this all worthwile. The output is almost at twice the level as my stock (MEC) pickup. It's very ballsy, very low end articulated, fatty, and maybe a bit under represented in the mids. As the wood in my bass make for a particularly mid heavy sound, this works out well, but it is something to be noted. All in all, do recommend!

Mexican Preci
Watoosh13, 04.11.2019
I used this Pickup to replace the stock pickups in my mexican fender precision bass. Replacing them was farely easy, remove the pickguard and the old pickups, solder them in, adjust the height and put the pickguard back in place, that is it.

I give the sound 3 stars because it's not a real improvement to the old ones. Nevertheless, the quarterpound delivers what it promisses. Heavy bottoms, singing mids and (if you really crank them up) defined hi's.

It probably comes down to my bass, which is not really a hight quality product and is thus not able to really support the pickup, maybe this thing would work better in a American Performer (or something in that range).

Good upgrade for a lower class bassguitar
chaosopher, 09.05.2018
I am happy with my purchase of these pickups, they are versatile and they have power. It is currently used in a bleus, and rock setting, but it can produce nice jazzy tones as well.

I bought these as replacement for a low end bass and it sounds much better. The immidiate difference wasn't huge. But the tone is rich with more sustain and most iportantly it sits good in a mix. This is where i noticed most of the improvement.

Installing the pickups was easily done the wiring daigram is clear.

This product doesnt have any cons.

The one and only SPB-3
EmissionCtrl , 09.06.2018
I was looking for a Precision Bass Pickup to replace on my bass guitar (Alder Body with maple neck/rosewood fretboard).
I got this pickup mainly because of artists that I always admired use/used it (Ex: Joe Principe (Rise Against). The Seymor Duncan SPB-3 is really versatile, you can play any style with it, it also handles high gain really well. I love the natural growl you have from the SPB-3. It doesn't really matter the genre or the way you play the bass (Finger style, slap, thumb, pick) this pickup will make people hear the way you express yourself with the instrument. Perfect.
