    So, there's been lots of talk about the Bartolini CB series being a good substitute for Lane Poor pickups. Even the oft repeated description on the Bartolini website makes it sound like these would be the pickups to own if you're trying to approximate the Lane Poor sound.

    Here's my question: has anyone yet actually heard the Bartolini CB MM humbucker and, if so, can you tell us how it compares to a Lane Poor?

    I've heard them individually in different basses, not in the same bass, so it'd be an apples to oranges comparison.
