    Does anyone know whether the bridge pickup in the BB series (424x, etc.) is a true single coil or a stacked pickup?

    Considering how much it hums, I'm going to guess single....

    Still love it though, but gotta shield it or something.

    I'm very interested in the new BB line basses. They look fabulous. I gotta check them out in person.

    It's completely single. They're meant to be "vintagie" so no modern stuff such as stacked pickups and stuff
