I just bought the Fender Japanese made '51 P-Bass. It's the one with one single coil pickup and it's buttercotch blonde on ash with the black pickguard. It's an awesome instrument with a lot of bottom end but the pickup is very noisy. I am looking for the best replacement Pickup that has the same amount of output and gives a classic vintage style sound without all the noise. I don't want one of these hyped up modern sounding ceramic pickups or the ones that boost the output so much that you get distortion at the amplifier. If you think the stock Fender single coil pickup is the best sounding one please let me know so that I don't go chasing somehting that isn't there. Any help here would be greatly appreciated!
