    I am in search of a five string mudbucker, and I have no idea where to start. I am reworking my frankenjazz, and I would love to add some darkside thump to it. My four strings have mudbuckers and I love them. They all have such indivedual character. And that "black cloud" effect of filling up open sonic space can't be beat.
    I guess I would settle for cream pickups, but I am really dreaming of chrome. The world used to be better, in chrome trim and black vinyl. Thanks for your help

    Did you ever come across anything suitable?

    I got a PM from SGD Lutherie. Unfortunately he doesn't have a chrome package. I can choose one of his standard black packages and he can wind it to muddy specs, or I can send him a can. I am thinking about it. Maybe he can get cream epoxy? I have been holding back, since if I am going to drop $150 on a pickup, I want these bad boys. http://www.q-tuner.com/bl5/
