Powering this beast is a Hand-Wound 55 P-Bass pickup that delivers a warm, rich thump with deep lows, punchy mids, and crystal-clear highs. Just plug it into your favorite tube amp, crank the volume, and you'll churn out thunderous tones that'll take you right back to the golden era of rock 'n' roll.
