A while back I posted a review of this bass. Got it from Musician's Friend on clearance for about 225, normally 400 or so, MSRP like 600 I think. Anyway, after some setup work, it played and sounded really well, but I was plagued with the single coil hum I can't take. Enter maurilio's sale of a set of bartolini 59 J1 L1/LN1 CBJD (classic bass) pickups. Just got'em in today and installed them. They totally dropped in perfect. Literally like a 15min job. Night and day. In a good way. Prolly 'cause they're humbuckers, they're not quite as scooped sounding, so you need to tweak the amp a bit to get the same slap tone as beforoe, however, the overall tone is much better. Much more even and wider... better lows and highs. This bass is gonna' get more airtime now for sure.
