How did it drop so that the pickups got messed with? Did it fall onto a protruding object or something?!

it was onto concrete from quite a height... the pickups where the only thing damaged apart from a chip in the body

Wilkinson pick ups aren't too expensive and are ok for that p-bass sound, not sure how much a Duncan Designed would set you back, but I wouldn't think that much.

Whell if you want you can jsut get new better pickups for that bass instead of getting a whole new Bass. Like Seymor Duncan quarterpound pickups, Dimarzio pickups, or Rio Grande pickups.

New pickups dramaticly changes the sound of a Bass. usually if you spend enough, the Bass sounds better than it did!


Or you can get 12$ pickups.

Well, if he's gonna get a new bass in 8 months i'd leave it buggered for the minute, unless of course he's got a gig/show coming up soon, but if not, leave it screwed up and replace the pickups at a later date...

positive its not just a loose wire or something? i wouldn't go replacing an entire server if i got a 404 error

Aren't they pickup covers?


I don't think so, by the looks of the page you can get them in different colours, so those are just the black ones.
