So I did it again and I am very happy!! I have modded more basses with alternative pickups and electronics than I want to reveal. And all sold for a loss
But these two pickup mods to my Roscoes are amazingly good.
I first modded the fretless. Moved the neck pickup next to the bridge pickup. Amazing. I have the Jaco sound and the fat sound.
On the fretted, I added the pickup closest to the neck. The blend pot now blends the two neck pickups. The bridge pup is now just a $100.00 counter balance
These configurations are perfect for me. On both basses, I do not want any pickups either north or south of where I have them now.
