    Anyone hear anything about the new Steve Harris sig Duncans ? They are suppose to be a Hot Vintage voiced pick ups. Im wondering of they are something special or just a SPB1 that comes in his sig bass with his picture on the box.

    I've exchanged the Wilkinson pups of my Vintage V4-MTB with the SD SPB-3 Quarterpounders Steve Harris uses in his Sig Fender.
    Well, my cheap Fender like Vintage Guitar now rocks your pants off, really. They have more output than one of my active basses and a killer sound. :hyper:

    The Steve Harris sig bass actually uses the SPB 1

    Thats ok I always thought it came with SPB2s.
     
  9. If memory serves, the original sig used the SPB-2 (vintage hot) and the current version the SPB-3. (1/4 pounder)

    Every add Ive seen for the current sig bass has SPB1 listed. Regardless Im still wondering if this pickup is something new or just repackaged something old.

    His real bass has custom wound Duncans that are closest to SPB2.
