I'm doing this for my bassist...
He has a Peavey Millennium 5 BXP Bass, but we only need a 4 string...
But he is looking at trading the Peavey for a Squier P Bass with some cash.
With the cash he is looking to just buy pickups and swapping them out.
Is it advisable? I know that he also needs to rewire it as the pots aren't that great...
I told him he should put Seymour Duncan Quarter Pounders in the P Bass...
Thanks ahead of time.

It will cost less and will be as good as the stock american pickups

I have the GFS jazz bass pups in my mim and I get tons of compliments. I would also suggest replacing the wiring with Premo wire and dont skimp and get the real fender/CTS potentiometers. It'll make a difference that you wont regret.

How much do you think it would cost for the pots, the pickups and someone to install it all?
And is that a no go for the Seymour Duncan Quarter Pounders?

Honestly if he likes the Peavey I'd just have him keep that. I'm assuming since he's looking at a trade for a Squier + cash that its a Squier Affinity, in which case the Peavey is generally going to be the better bass. You could throw new pickups in the Squier but if its poorly put together, well then you're just trying to polish a turd.
