Can anyone answer this?
I'd like to install a passive bridge pickup (single coil) into a passive P bass, but i don't want it to change the tone of the split coil P pickup (when split coil is solo-d). I don't mind 60 cycle hum at all, i just dont know if the split coil tone itself will be affected.
Anyone done it?
Have a 5 string 2007 Rockbass Streamer LX I recently bought to keep my 4 string Vampyre RB company. I also have in my possesion a 5 string 2 piece warwick "3D" bridge. You can see where I am going with this...
Does anyone have any pointers/diagrams/templates/advice on fitting the 3D in place of the older Fender type high mass? Particularly the depth of rout the bridge and tailpiece sit in? Or (as I am more of a hobbyist) suggest someone in the midlands who could do the routing for me? I have no issues with reparing empty screw holes etc myself but the thought of wrecking the bass by messing up the routing is a bit unnerving..
Lovely Squier Bronco Bass in red, purchased from Big County's Scott Whitley. This bass benefits from some lovely flame on the neck and headstock. it's in very good condition with only a couple of very slight marks. The grey square thing on the scratchplate is a stick on furniture carpet protector from B&Q which I use as a thumb rest. Happy to remove before sale if required. There's a scratch on volume knob. The bass benefits from the following mods:
High Mass Bridge
Artec Blade style pickup
The original bridge and pickup will be included. Based in Milton Keynes. Postage available at buyers risk and cost. No case available but I have packing materials. £125 firm.
Made this bass as a compact back up to my gigging bass.
It started life as a Squier Bronco, but has since had some decent upgrades:
-Nordstrand NM4 Mustang Pickups
-Upgraded bridge (now with 4 individual saddles for better intonation).
-d'Addario Chrome flat wounds.
-Genuine Mustang scratch plate (pickguard....I'm American after all).
-Fully grounded and copper shielded.
-New wiring harness featuring CTS pots and orange drop capacitor.
-Sanded and used NW guitars amber nitro on the neck. Needed a new headstock decal....hence the "Fender Mustang Bass"....can be removed easily enough if you prefer.
-Control plate is not quite right (it's part of the original Bronco scratch plate) but I'm including a new Mustang control plate that maybe you can work to fit.
Includes original packaging for Norstrands plus a good Epiphany well padded gig bag (originally a long scale but modified for short scale....bass fits great in it).
I love the Mustang experience so much I'm going to get a MIM Offset PJ Mustang next week and already have a modified Bronco with Jazz pick ups, so off this one goes.
Local deal would be great (Teddington TW11), but happy to ship mainland UK for £20.
