Muy Grande 51 for P-Bass

5.0 2
Great upgrade for your early P style bass
I have a Warmoth 54 style P bass body (swamp ash body,  maple/rosewood neck and flatwound Rotosound sm77 strings).  When I built this bass I initially installed an aftermarket "vintage output" single coil P pickup, the kind commonly found on eBay for around $40 or $50.  At band rehearsals, I found myself "digging in" too hard to get the output I wanted.  Turning up the amp volume somehow just made it sound too loud without getting the subtle nuances I was trying to project with my playing technique.  Tried out the Muy Grande '51 pickup and I must say the improvement is remarkable.  I can now really hear what my fingers are doing without having to be too loud in the mix and the details of what I'm playing come through very well with minimal effort on my part.  The Muy Grande '51 still keeps the desirable tone of a vintage output single coil P pickup, perhaps adds some low/mid thickness but highs stay bright, and there is some lovely 60 cycle hum but not where it's too much.  I can best describe this pickup upgrade as reading a newspaper in a typical room, then turning on the lamp next to you and suddenly it's "oh yeah it's the same newspaper but I can see much better now".  I'm guessing this pickup would be a real home run for most any player with one of those Vintage Vibe or Sting basses.

1969 Telecaster Bass in Tennessee
Bought a Muy Grande 51 P Bass pickup for my husband's 69 Telecaster bass that he's had since 1971 and played in many bands.  According to him, the Muy Grande sound is incredible--louder and far more tonal range than either the original telecaster pup or a replacement he bought in the 90's.  Really pleased with the pickup, but WE DIDN'T GET THE TEE SHIRT!!  My husband really wanted that shirt.

Muy Grande

A powerful replacement for the TeleĀ® bridge, the Muy Grande gives you that classic tone you've come to expect, but a lot more of it!


A true humbucking for people who will not compromise on the "single coil" mode of a standard humbucking type pickup. Fits a conventional humbucking cavity but when split to one coil gives you the sound of a "true" single coil. Why? ... because it is! This feature when combined with a middle position single coil will give you the ultimate "quack" tone in the #2 position of your 5-way switch. Sounds fantastic in the full humbucking mode too! A greater harmonic range than a regular bucker. Imagine the natural response of the perfect single coil buckerized! Comes in "F" spacing...."G" spacing available on request.

Dual Calibrated

Balanced for your guitar in two distinct ways. First, standard calibration of DC resistance output in ohms or "k", and magnetic power calibration as well! Muy Grande in the bridge,Halfbreed in the middle, and the Vintage Tallboy in the neck....Middle Pickup is supplied RWRP

Dirty Harry

Like it's namesake, the Dirty Harry for Tele emulates the tonal characteristics of a P-90 pickup, but made for a Telecaster bridge opening.

Muy Grande

All the features of the Tallboy and the Halfbreed, but the most powerful of these three HB's. Big, Beefy, & Muscular
