First off... Beautiful Bass!
I've been using S.D. 1/4 pounders for a few years now; I have one in my pink paisley P reissue, as well in several other of my basses (mostly the split p version).
I've always been a big fan of that sound, but in the past year, I have started liking a more "vintage" sound (less grind? distortion?)
Maybe one of Seymour's less powerful pickups (or Lollars, Fralins...) may be what you need.
Again... Damn fine looking bass Sir!

I am getting a odd distortion sound with it.
I unhooked the pots and cap and wired it straight to the jack and the distortion is still present. I also get it while plugged into the mixer listening with headphones.
I am going to have to play around with the pickup height. Also may take the flatwounds off and try different strings.
I don't know if I may could have messed up the pickup when I wraped it with the white string and wax potted it.
