P bass pickups

Having recently purchased a set of golden age P bass pick ups to replace stock pick ups on a 57 Road worn fender bass. I found the pick ups to be absolutely perfect in every way Paired with a new pushback cloth wired harness there is no question you could not ask for better. Highly recommend it for studio and life.

I wanted to replace some EMGs and these seemed like a great option. I also bought the wiring harness and this made the job incredibly easy. Two solders and boom! These pickups sound great and have revitalized my instrument.

I had planned on buying the Fender Vintage pick-up, but when I saw how much more reasonably priced Stew Mac's was I went for it. I'm very glad I did. The PU was delivered very quickly, the installation was very simple, and they sound great! I'll be ordering from Stew Mac again!

Well worth it, and recommended

i bought my first set of Golden Age pickups, a hot single and an overwound humbucker, for a guitar I built for myself. Being short of money I have to say it was the price which attracted me more than anything and the good reviews sealed the deal. I've since put them in all my builds including custom orders. I put a pair of P bass pickups in this bass I built, and the customer loves them.

I love this pickup!

I was gifted a Squier Bullet P bass, lovingly crafted in China, from a friend in Hilo, Hawaii. Surprisingly, I was able to set it up and get it to play well but I always thought it needed a better pickup. StewMac was recommended to me so I checked it out, everything looked good, the price was affordable and I ordered it. This pickup has transformed my lowly $100 Squier into a massive groove machine! Next, the wiring harness. Thanks, StewMac!

Revived my old PBass!

What a great find! My bass was dead, as one pickup had an open winding. I was going to have both rewound but at this price it was cheaper to buy new ones. Easy install and they sound terrific. Took me less than an hour to have this classic bass sound like new. Very happy with this purchase.

Great Tone - Great Price

I have installed a few sets of these in recent months and found them to be perfect for vintage replacements. Like other Golden Age pickups I have installed, they are very well made and look like original equipment pickups in every detail. They have nice long leads in black and white push-back wire and include all mounting hardware. The sound is exceptional. I would put them up against any pickup at twice the price or more. If you like classic P-Bass tone, these are the pickups you want.

WOW!!!

I was looking to replace the non-stock pickup someone had dropped in my 1996 MIM P-bass... this was due to the high pitch feedback that pickup made. When I saw the specs on this pickup, I was sold.
I did have to resolder the linking wire on one of the pickups because it fell off during install.... (Suggestion for Golden Age please start using the brass inserts through the wiring holes) After managing this little problem, the pickup now works as it should and sounds fantastic. While I had my bass apart, I also upgraded the electronics with push-back wire, new pots and a new cap, just to make sure that the P-bass would be back to better than original glory.
WOW! Powerful, thick and crisp... It makes my P-Bass sound like it should.
