    Hey guys,

    I have an Icon5p with Jazz style soap bar pickups that I love to play but I used to have an LB75p with the MM/J pickup setting and I just miss the bark and funk that the MM pickup gave me.

    My bass has a swamp body
    5 piece maple neck with walnut veneers
    Ebony fretboard
    quilted maple top with matching headstock
    Colour is triple deep purple

    Controls are:
    Volume with push/pull active passive
    Blend between neck and bride and also blend for piezo
    Concentric bass/treble
    Concentric midrange/boost-cut
    And internal volume control for each piezo string as well as overall volume.

    I would really like to trade for either an LB75p, XB75p or Icon5p with MM/J pickup configuration.

    However, I am open to offers, so long as they have they have the MM/J pickups config.

    My bass has been played and does have a chip on the top of the headstock and a few scratched here and there so I'm not expecting and immaculate bass for trade, but I don't want a garbage bass either and I would also prefer the original electronics and pickups left in the bass, unless you can prove the replacements were installed professionally. (Too many headaches with basses that have had electronics swapped by DIYers.

    Sorry for the long winded explanation!

    Here's a screen shot of what it would cost to build my bass with the exact specs.

    Would also consider any med/high end 5 string with HH/S pickup configuration.

    How about finding reputable luthier, and just get your bass routed for a MM pup? It shouldn't cost more than $50-$75 for the route, plus the cost of the MM pup. It wouldn't take more than a couple of hours to have it done. And, it'd be especially beneficial if you love how that bass plays. Just my 2 pennies.
