    I have a new Squier CV 50's Precision bass, and have read several posts about installing a Stratocaster rail-type humbucker in it. I even read somewhere that Seymour Duncan recommends it ! Has anyone out there done this, and how did it work out. Dimensionally, they are very close, so no radical modifications would have to be done. Input and opinions are welcome - looking for options before I spring big $$ on a Fralin dual coil !!

    It works. It was a cheap China rail humbucker PU, but works nicely. The sound is thicker and kind of cleaner. Attack is not so rude as original. And it is noiseless. Those China PUs costs around 10 USD. I also tried a DiMarzio (fast track or something). Worked quite similar.
    Liked more that rude single coil character.
