I have a 89 MIJ Fender P-bass. I want to replace the pick-up and I'm looking at a Bartolini 8S P, or the Seymour Duncan 1/4 pounder

any opinions? or suggestions of a different pup

I'm looking for a phatter tone than the stock pup provides

I don't want active as I don't want to deal with batteries

Bartolini are great pups ..... I replaced the ones in my P bass long ago with a bartolini and it sounded great.
Too bad you don't need jazz bass p'ups .... I have a set of Bartolinis just sitting in a drawer. I'll never use them since I strictly play 5-string.
I also have a bad ass set of DiMarzio jazz p'ups.

I may be buying a fretless jazz bass... may be interested in the pups...

It's down to a better fretless than I have of an AEA ribbon mic or a AKG C414 (a good week on e-bay)
