    I've been playing this bass for a few years and the pickups have progressively gotten louder, more microphonic. I'm considering installing new pickups instead of trying to pot the current ones. Wondering if ya'll have advice on replacement pickup size gotchas for this model and/or your experience with potted pickups as that isn't something I've looked into much.

    If you want a replacement as close as possible to the original, this guy is supposed to be very good:

    Hopefully someone else will be able to chime in as well.

    Thanks, I'll check that out. I'm not as concerned about replicating the exact sound as finding pickups that are the right size/configuration. And I'm not shy with a soldering iron so this will likely be a personal job. I just hate to have to do the guesswork/dremeling.

    A Bart Humbuck is a Very Close Fit! (Plus you can replace the 2 position switch with a 3!)

    I have had them in a couple of different basses. One needed a little routing in the Y-Direction to fit...
