I may be wrong but i think they're a weird size/shape and you can't easily drop in replacements. But why would you want to change them?

I get that they are already pretty decent PUPS,I was just wondering if they could be improved upon,and if so what with.Which begs another question.?Are the pups on these basses specifically made for this particular Bass,if so seems strange that Yamaha would do this ,as it limits up selling to alternative PUPS.

Yup (although pickups from a 1024 or 2024 would probably fit if you could find some)
and
Yup

They are weird shapes compared to everyone else.


Pick up covers I think are glued on, but they will wiggle off - you may be able to then fit another split coil underneath, but the poles may not match exactly if that bothers you.

The other thing would be to get the actual Pick ups Re-wound to your own taste and that may work for you - choose your U.K. based pick up maker as per your taste!

      I am selling my beautiful Yamaha TRB 5Pii with maple top. The bass has a few dings and dongs, but is electronic 100% (see pictures).
      The bass is all original, except the string tree, which is added by the previous owner.
      The bass isn't that long in my possession and was more of a 'once in a lifetime chance' to get to play this wonderfull and hard to find bass. But i don't take it as often as my Yamaha BB5000, which is a whole different peace of bass.
      The bass has a perfect B-string, low action and weights 4.8kg. It is a bit heavy, but the sound is enormous.
      I am asking 1600 pounds. I think this is a reasonable price, according to more sales on the internet. If not, please let me know!
      Looking for cash, but a trade + cash is also an option. Shipping is possible, i can find a case and i have a box. Pickup is possible in The Netherlands or Germany.

      Hi all
      A great bass from the Yamaha custom shop in Japan, bought new from Yamaha Music London in Soho in 2017.
      I have been gigging with this bass for 2 years and it has never let me down. The build quality is fantastic and the neck is solid. I just fancy trying something new and different so would like to raise funds for a new bass.
      You can hear me playing it live in the video below where I had the bass set on the neck pick up just like a P Bass.
       
      I have mainly used it in P Bass mode and it is great for Motown and Soul and Disco music and sits perfectly in the mix.
      The added benefit of switching between pick ups creates a variety of different sounds and the tone dial has a lot of depth to it depending on how much you roll on or off. For example, you can get a great Jaco sound from the bridge pick up and then a quick change to sounding like Jamerson on the neck pick up. It's like having two basses in one. Or you can have a great Jazz Bass sound with plenty of bite and punch on both pick ups.
      It is in great condition and comes with a Yamaha case and certificate. Come and check it out.
      My feedback is here https://www.basschat.co.uk/topic/298215-feedback-for-darylclayton/?tab=comments#comment-3211013
      Thanks
