    Hey guys!

    I'm wondering of you have some experience with Bartolini MM humbuckers? I'm considering one for my Ibanez RD500 Fretless, since i'm not happy with the stock pickup, which is too brigth and nto growly enough for my tastes.

    And oh, what model would you reccomend? As fas as i know, they come in different verisions, like MMC, MMK, MMX and so on.

    I need a pickup that's not too high output, not too brigth, but growly and still has some "headroom", so that i can play with some accents without the sound getting too compressed.

  4. I've believe i have the bart mmc in my modulus flea. I love them with this bass. Def. add a lot of b~~~s and seem to repruce pretty acurately. But I'm not completly sure where the graphite neck ends and the pickup begins. Gets good highs, mids if you want them, and plenty of low. Might be too much output though if you don't want that. Try and play a modulus flea, might help out a little.
