DiMarzio Model P Bass Pickup DP122


 Breathe new life into any bass by replacing its stock pickup with a DiMarzio Model P. This hum-canceling two-piece pickup brings big, punchy sound to Fender Precision Bass style pickups. 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 JTM and experience any tone from a tight mid-range punch to a warm bottom-end with bright, clear attack.

Recommended For:

Middle position (standard Fender Precision mounting).

Tech Talk:

Heavy sound with midrange emphasis. Aggressive sound designed to cut through dense tracks and loud situations.

Note: This is a two-coil pickup. With the addition of a mini switch or push-pull pot, series / parallel switching is possible with hum canceling in both positions. However, coil cutting is not possible with this pickup because both coils must be "on" to hear all four strings.
