Did this a little while ago, but forgot to post the results.

I ordered some replacement P pickups from Guitar Fetish for my fretless. Only $40 after shipping.

I'm quite satisfied. The difference from the original pickups is subtle, but it makes a big difference. The character of the bass is the same as it was before, but much more refined. It has a lot more of that P bass sound. For the first time, I think I really "get" what the p bass character is all about, and this is my second P. :D

I put rounds back on and they really liven up the bass. But man, it was thumpy with the flats before.

Here's a little clip overdubbed with some crappy soloing and no EQ.

sounds great man.what was the recording chain?

 

Bass->computer. :D

There's some electrical issues I still need to fix. Some of the old solder joints came off while I was installing the pups somehow. So the tone knob is effectively bypassed and it's not properly grounded somehow.

 

Here's a more processed recording while the bass still had flats on. This one has some EQing/compressing and a bit of reverb. Beware weirdness.
