    Hey! I'm looking for a company that makes the chrome or metal pickups etc. I don't know the proper name for them. You see them on guitars all the time. I know Lace makes something sorta like it for bass, but not quite the same. In addition, I'm not looking for a pickup cover, I mean an actual pickup.

    Here's an example: http://mikelull.com/site/instruments/basses/bass-T4_T5.html

    You can buy those right from Lull. Thunderbucker Ranch makes some too, as well as a few other companies that I can;t remember off the top of my head.

    They're Gibson T Bird replacements

    Lollar also makes vintage reproduction thunderbird pickups. available in chrome, gold chrome, and black chrome.

    I have a set that I modded into a Fender Jaguar bass and they are fantastic.
