Our most popular Basslines pickup. High output, versatile, pickup. Recommended for blues, classic rock, punk, heavy rock, classic metal and nu-metal.

description
The quarter-inch diameter pole pieces expand the magnetic field and extend the frequency ranges for fat, full, punchy sound with tremendous mid-range presence and maximum output. Though often used for heavy rock tones, this pickup gives amazing tonal versatility to a single pickup instrument making this the most popular Basslines pickup. Includes logo covers.

complete setup
Often used together with STC-3M3 and -3M4 Tone Circuits for optimal tonal control.

guitars
For warmer toned ash, alder or basswood body instruments. Works especially well with rosewood fingerboards.

These are great if you upgrading any P-Bass copy. I put these in a Korean made P-bass copy and they brought new life this bass. I think the stock pickups in a Fender American Standard P-Bass are better for the Fender as they are clearer and more balanced then putting the quarter pounders in the Fender. Other than that, I would buy again for other basses.

Want to wake up your Mexican Fender, squire or even the American standard, this is the pickup for you! Great tone, high output and great all around value. It's the best $75.00 bucks you will spend!!!

Have used the SPB2's on two of my Mex P-basses and just ordered another set for one of my U.S. P-bass. My other U.S. std has Cust Shop PUP's.

This is an economical way to upgrade the MIM bass. The biggest change is an increase in the effective range of the tone control. The sound is big, powerful.
