    Has anyone replaced this setup? I'm thinking about replacing this system w a quality passive pup. I feel the electronics have too much coloration. Thinking about a good MM style or 2 jazz w V/V/T.

    It's not an easy size rout to fill. I had a Fortress Masterman and tried to change it out, but it wasn't easy. FWIW, I put an EMG 35 sized pickup in with a chunk of wood to keep the space filled.

    Delano does make a pickup in that shape.

    I do agree that the electronics are lacking. Mine had one of the bass/treble stacks just... die.
    Are you opposed to using a different preamp to change the tone?

    Im going passive in all of my basses. Have a nice simple and clean signal that be juiced later. Less distracting knobs and switches

    Now that I think about it, they make the "Dual J" cover as well, Mojotone sells it. If it's the right dimensions, you could really put almost anything under it... from standard J pickups to a MM to soapbars...

    Wish I had a parts bass to trade you though... :D

    I am in possession of that exact Delano pickup and trying to sell it. Asking $160, shipping included there. It's brand new and doesn't fit p deluxe basses.

    The Mojotone cover is the fender size. Pete biltoft is winding me a quad coil with that cover at the moment for my P lyte deluxe.

    The Delano is meant to fit Warwicks (think of it US vs. German sizes). That little shiny plastic spacing between the coils creates the sizing difference.

    It's quad coil. I went passive with my P Lyte, which left me with extra knob holes from the 3 band EQ to fill. The Honda civic bolts look good, but when my custom quad finally comes, I'm planning to pop switches in those holes instead. So in the end I've replaced equalization with series/parallel/"single" switches.

    I say switches because I'm hoping to wire that 3 way switch to another switch (2 way) that will determine what constitutes the single coil function of the first. Like, the two in-line bridgeward vs. neckward. Or use the catty corner coils, like another P pickup right at the bridge. I think that's a worthy trade-off from a preamp offering EQ.

    I'm in this same boat right now with my Pro-M (5). I'm considering the Delano (because it's pretty much my only option short of getting a Twin-J pickup cover and stuffing my preferred pickups inside) in a passive setup or perhaps to add a Bart or Sadowsky pre.

    If I get it in I will report on the results.

    LeifVernaculum, I assume the pickup you are looking to sell is for 4-string?
