Agrees with Bholder, the Dimarzio rail type P's. Though my fave for best agressive P tone are the BC Rich BDSM P bass pups for bridge and neck position as found stock on the NT (& classic series for mockingbird) & warlock basses.

 

500 ks do emphasize treble but not in a good way imo as compared to the more even but growly lows thru highs of 200k pots with right pups imo.

I'll have to try and score some DiMarzio Split Ps. I have a friend that might have a bass with them I can try out.

Do it. And if you want it to be REALLY aggressive, wire those bitches straight to the jack. Aggression on a P is obtained by cranking the volume and tone anyways, so get those pots out of the signal chain and your bass will come alive.

+1 on wiring direct to the jack! I have my fretless P wired direct with a Reverend 10K P pickup. It's hot as hell, I had it wired like that when I had it fretted too. It packs some punch. :love:

Y'know, after I sent that pickup your way, I really started kicking myself in the pants. I didn't stop kicking until I finally got another a few months ago.Oh, and the BAII is definitely a good compliment to the DP 127. :thu:Although, I can't explain it, but when I had that combination on the Yamaha BB300 that I had, it didn't sound just right for some reason. :freak:
