Want some new pickups for me Squier affinity P bass. I just want to improve the overall sound, preferably I want a punchier sound but more modern than vintage. I play mainly alternative rock. My Budget is about £80 at most.

you could look into the pickups that the VM p bass has
Duncan Designed™ PB101 Split Single-Coil Pickup

straight from the fender site.
i would imagine they would work pretty damn well but i can't find any prices for them apart from when they are on the VM p bass.
that being said, i'm really not a pickup buff
DONT RISK IT, BUY A BASS AMP

Yeah I haven't tried any of their bass pickups, but Seymour Duncan is what I'd go for.

there's quite a population here that uses quarter pounders but they warn that there's also people that dislike them.

as far as those duncan designed, i disliked th VM p basses, so i don't know if they're your best choice... however, i'm not much of a p bass guy, so what would i know...

When you break a bass string, that snapping sound is the sound of six dollars going down the crapper.

Duncan designed are just cheap ones with SD's name on them.

Check out Wizard Pickups. http://www.wizardpickups.co.uk/

UK company, Andy will make a P pickup exactly how you want it to sound. He's a really nice chap as well!

Thanks for the replies. I was looking at the SD's, EMG PHZ and Fender's 62 reissue pickups but I can't decide. I may just go with wizard because they are fair priced, local and willing to make a pickup to any specification.

What amp are you using? I just got my 3rd affinity P bass and the pickups work for me so far.

Aka I wouldn't spend money on pickups until after I really spent money on a good amp.
