    The title says it all! Does anyone out there have any 3 (or more) pickup basses? I always found these to be interesting basses. Modded or stock!

    The Black bass at the end is a Fender Urge with J-P-J configuration.

    Sadly, this isn't real.

    But this is.

    Also, a TBer has made a few three-pickup basses shaped like oversized Strats - check those out in the luthier's corner.

    Clover Avenger looks nice with the unevenly spaced pickups.

    I'd love a Vista Sonic.

    The ORIGINAL Burns Bison guitar had 4 pickups - I played one in Glasgow in 1962. The bass had pickups that were very similar, only being 4-pole.

    This one might not count since they're basically wired like one big pickup, but...

    Back to three. Here's a signature ESP.

    And if you'd like each pickup to be different...

    Many people criticize these basses. I think they sound great.

    There is some serious stuff going on with that beast!

    What are the controls, and does it have a stereo out?

    :eek:
