Yamaha BB1600 pickup question
I've recently bought a Yamaha BB1600 and the bridge pickup has been replaced. Are the newer BB414/424 bridge pickups the same as the vintage? Are they similar sonically or do I need to source a vintage pickup for the proper tone?...Dunno why anyone would replace it in the first place,to me that pickup is essential to that great BB tone....I doubt the original died,Yamaha basses from the 80's are rock solid and built to last...:cool:

Another question here is would the BB1600 body have to be routed to fit a traditional jazz bass pickup in place of the Yamaha pickup? Anyone done this replacement on a Yamaha BB bass? If so,did you like the results?
