Thanks, Mike. I read your post with great interest when it came out--and posted within it myself. Indeed, I considered the stacked pickup but believe the Duncan quarter pounder will be similar in size to my older bassline replacement (which went in without a hitch). Many thanks, and I will keep all this in mid as I go forward; I never had a shielding problem, though I did place copper tape along the underside of the pickguard. The bridge was never a problem either, but then I play lower on the neck. Thanks again!
So many basses, so little time.
