The 8SU is the Fender Precision Bass® (P Bass® ) replacement pickup. They are highly respected by musicians and luthiers alike for their vintage voicing - more lows and low-mids. They have lower output than 8CBP.The two pickups in the P-Bass pair overlap each other by 3/4" (19mm).The "original series" bass pickups with passive designs. They are cast in epoxy to remove unwanted feedback and microphonics.
Please check the physical size of the pickups you want to replace to make sure the replacements fit properly.
- Length = 2.20"(56mm) Width = 1.08"(28mm)
Please Note:Bartolini does not provide screws with their pickups. If you need pickup screws, you can get them on the Pickup Screws page.

In any case. they are perfectly balanced tonally; great bottom, mids and active-like top end.
I replaced EMG pickups with these and they turned a flipper restoration project P-Bass into a keeper.
I also have the 9SU's on a Jazz bass and won't even consider a different pickup from now on.
Barts are hard to find at any price. They're an absolute steal from BBG.
