Big Single into Sadowsky Modern 24-5
I have been considering the idea of replacing the bridge EMG pick-up with a Nordstrand Big Single on my fretless Sadowsky Modern 24-5 and wondered if anyone had performed this change before (just wondering how difficult it would be wiring wise with an active and passive pup). I prefer to keep the active EMG in the neck position as I dig the tone solo'd but I want to experiment with the passive Big Single in the bridge position. I've seen the posts that offer advice on how a Modern's bridge pickup position limits any significant tone variation due its close proximity to the bridge...but thought I'd consult the TB collective for additional pro's and con's
The M5-24 is far from a Marcus Miller slap tone
Its soapbars close to the bridge give it a low mid voicing and a very modern, pingy slap tone. To me it's closer to Mark King's slap tone - KJung
