    So I'm gonna get a bass at some point in the future, probably sooner rather than later. The question I have is, what's a good aftermarket pickup, specifically for the Precision. Any experience with the GFS Overwound, specifically? If not, there's always the more proven SD Quarter Pound.

    Anybody have a preference?

    I have been less than impressed with the 4 or 5 different types of GFS guitar pickups I have tried... I ended up having Bryan of BG Pups wind me a set of j-bass pickups, but I haven't built the bass, yet, so they are just sitting here...

    Why not wait until you actually get the bass and see how it sounds before you mutilate it?

    I usually don't replace bass pickups unless they are defective. To my ears there just isn't a lot of variation with them.
