Noticed a change in their G-string's output? I know this subject has been beaten into the ground numerous times, but I just received a beautiful SR4 from Ebay and I love everything about it EXCEPT that thin/weaker sounding G-string. To echo the title of this thread, has anyone replaced the stock MM pickup with something else? I REALLY don't want to sell this bass due to its construction/overall sound. I have tried adjusting the pickup height, different strings, EQing the amplifier and the bass - everything else that has been mentioned, I tried. Would replacing the stock pickup with a SD or something of that nature alter the sound dramatically? This thread is NOT meant to argue or debate this topic in any way. I have seen some people deny, defend, and insult those who disagree with this notion.
