The electric bass starts with the Precision Bass. The bass pickup that invented "funk" is still virtually unchanged today with the Original P Bass? pickup. Made with Alnico 5 magnets and enamel coated magnet wire, this P-Bass pickup provides the humbucking punch and boom associated with the electric bass. OEM on American Vintage and many Custom Shop basses. Each pickup comes with a copper shield and black covers. Available in black only, sold as each.
