Nice upgrade -

By
(Customer's Reviews)


I own a crappy Squire Fender P Bass that I use for practice for home. I used it a couple times for church worship but it sounded thin and farty. I stumbled on to this Stewart McDonald website and read the reviews for the "Golden Age P Bass pickups". I did some other research on the other brand names (EMG, Duncan, etc.) but it felt like the Ford vs. Chevy debate - you know a lot of noise and opinions. I went with the Golden Age P Bass pickups and their premium wiring kit and - - - - - - - WOW - The first puck was warm, yet bright and clear... Is that a contradiction? I don't know, but that's what raced through my mind at the first sound. I play a 4-string tuned B-E-A-D and the low B was loud and clear. By the way, the pots and capacitor that I pulled out of the Squire were puny toy-like things. The stuff I got from Stewart McDonald were good-looking' and the pots FEEL good. I'm very pleased. Great price, too. You need to know how to solder, but it's EASY to install these pups. My tone and volume knobs don't fit the new shafts, but I'll either drill out the old knobs or buy new ones. Oh yeah, the new pickup screws were longer than the ones that came in my bass, so I had to use the old ones. No biggie. If you have a crappy bass, get off yer keester and upgrade!

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.

fat and punchy!

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
