    I love my Thumb 5. But because of PU configuration, I kinda miss the fatness a neck pick-up would bring. I was thinking of adding a neck PU and maybe, while I'm at it replacing the 2 MEC and the on-board preamp (thinking about those Villette passive).

    I was thinking of a system where the two existing bridge pick-ups would be wired a la humbucker so I could have a blend between those two and the new neck PU.

    What do you guys think?
  2. Part of where the thumb gets IT'S sound is from that PU placement. I'd recommend trying a streamer STII for that fat neck PU sound.

    Well, I figured it would be less trouble to add a pick-up then to buy another bass!

    As I would keep the PUs at their original bridge placement, I would preserve the original tone while opening the palette of sound...
