New P-Bass pickup review

So I wandered into (the evil) G.C. the other day, and there on the clearance table was a new (Seymour) Duncan Performer Sledge Hammer P- pickup for $23! That was too cheap not to try out on my crappy Austin P copy. It is a definite improvement over the crappy stock pickup for sure. I had formerly ripped out the frets and bypassed the cheap pots so I threw some new good pots in when I did the pickup swap. The old pickups went from weak to weaker when I defretted it (almost no mwah). The new pickups have got a crisper top end, stronger output, and overall fuller/ballsier tone.:thu:

$23??? Nice upgrade! BTW, I love that bass!
:thu:

 

"$23???" That's what I said. Didn't go in looking for a pickup, but.......It's the ultimate budget bass. With the new pickup, the pots and the flatwounds, I have $48 invested in it total (the bass itself=free)!:D

 

That bass has no right to sound as good as it does.
