A Dual MM Pick Up Monster?! Is this possible!?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by BassBoyLeroy, Mar 26, 2002.

  1. First off, I've seen it. It's the real thing. Second, WHERE CAN I GET ONE!? For anyone that cares, here is the story:

    On Friday, I went to Borders Books & Music and bought Mass Nerder by All. On the liner notes is a picture of the band, most likely practicing. And there it was. A dual MM pickup MONSTER!

    Now, I may be out of touch, so please clue me in if the need arises. Was there ever a production model that had to MM-style pickups? Jeez, talk about GAS!

    The Musicman Sabre had 2 pickups. The G&L L2000 also has two similar pickups, as do a few newer cheap basses.
  3. Yep, it was the Music Man Sabre, and it was distinctly unpopular. The pickup placement was such that it couldn't get the Stingray tone. It was designed to be the J to the Stingray's P, but was far less of a success.
  4. I stand corrected. :p
