    I'm trying to decide on a '51 P-bass pup for a Paisley '54-style I'm putting together. I narrowed down my choice to a Fralin split-coil, but then I noticed Curtis Novak also makes a split-coil '51 pup.

    Has anyone tried Novak's, or both? What's the difference between them?
  2. I too am wondering this...

    My Jess Loureiro split just finally came from Spain! 4 weeks to ship. Nice handmade look to it with the waxed string wrap.
    4 conductor for series or parallel use.
    Unfortunately bass is still being lacquered so it'll be some time before I can hear it. 1491322449806466298848.
