Dark Star Pickup...in a MusicMan?
I love MusicMan Stingrays. I love the build quality, the feel, the look, the dimensions, the truss rod adjustment.
I have one from the mid 90s (the best era I think).
I love the Dark Star pickup too. Had one in a Sting P bass. Loved the sound. Recorded so well and set excellently in the mix for my roots rock gigs.
I have one layin' round' and have always thought that it would be a great complement to a Stingray and would indeed give me all I ever wanted from a bass. Basically a Music Man with a more organic sound. Why have i never seen this done? Am I nuts? I would suspect that the DS would not pair well with the EB preamp and would assume to replace the electronics with a basic passive v/T setup. Should I be talked out of this?
