Breathe new life into any bass by replacing its stock pickup with a DiMarzio Model P®. This hum-cancelling two-piece pickup brings big, punchy sound to Fender® Precision Bass®-style basses. The DiMarzio Model P® accurately reproduces the sound of your bass with added gain and solid tone. DiMarzio Model P® pickups cut through the band without sacrificing bottom-end power. Gutsy mid-range provides growl when the bass is pushed hard. Combine the DiMarzio Model P® with a bridge position DiMarzio Model JGäó or Ultra JazzGäó to achieve any tone from a tight mid range punch to a warm bottom-end with bright, clear attack.

I bought the Dimarzios to replace the stock pickups on my Squire bass. Easy to fit, and no mods to the scratch plate. Also left the wiring loom as stock. These Dimarzio pups have a massive output, compared to the Squires. With the pups set high to the strings I was getting a horrible sound/distortion If your amp has an active input, you may need to use it, or reduce the input gain/pot volume. I decided to lower the pup height, to about half of their thickness. I could then use the passive input and the distortion disappeared. A bit of tweaking to the amp & they now sound great!
Very high output pick ups, so any gain needs turning back on amp or pedals.
