I’ve installed a set of these P-Bass pickups from Stuart Mac in one of my bass projects and they have that classic vintage tone you all been looking for. Thank you Stuart Mac.

Hard to beat! Has the classic fat sound, works as a humbucker, and costs substantially less than digging up an original

These pups were just the thing to bring my P-Bass back to life. They fit right into place with the included mounting hardware, and the wiring instructions were clear and easy to follow. They produce a good, solid tone and are a great value. I wouldn't hesitate to buy them again.

The Golden Age bass pickup transformed my Squire P bass. It has great clarity and attack. It also has just the right amount of output at 10.5 ohms so when it's pushed hard you'll get a nice little growl out of it. I can't say enough about this pickup. Thumbs up to Stew Mac ! I highly recommend this pickup for anyone building a bass or someone to upgrade there existing pickup. My friends in the band think my bass sounds amazing and it does. Thanks Stew Mac Bravo.

My buddy gave up on his P Bass and parked it with a dud pickup. I put in a golden age for for virtually peanuts and it blew both of us away. He literally couldn't believe the value for money. I could!--Been there- done that. thanks

I recently purchased a set of the Golden Age P-Bass pickups for a bass guitar restoration project I have been working on. The pickups are very good and definitely worth the price paid.
