    I own a Stingray 5 which has the series/sigle coil/parallel switch in the pre-amp section. I was looking into buying a Bassline ASB-5 MM replacement pickup but I wander if I need to buy their Custom 3-coil MM pickup (for post-1996 Stingrays) for it to work with the 3-way switching I just mentioned.

    I read somewhere here in TB of someone who bought the ASB-5 regular replacement and could only switch between series and parallel.

    Thanks for your time...

    I e-mailed Seymour Duncan and yes, I have to buy a custom order 3-coil MM replacement to use in my Stingray5. I don't have pricing yet, but i'll keep you posted for others who might want to replace their stock PU also.

    Oh yeah, and they told me that i have to keep the stock pre-amp for the pickup to work.

    Peace...
