    I know that it wouldn't be very common to replace the pick-ups in the Bongo or HH Stingray, but considering the different routing as the normal MM drop ins, how would one go about that?

    Or has it ever been done?

    Why exactly would someone want to?

    I was wanting a semi-custom bass, and don't really have the tools to make one myself; contracting it out has been a bit more difficult than I thought it would be. They have a nice HH Stingray at Guitar Center that I like quite a bit, though I was wanting 3 coil pick-ups so I could install a series/parallel/single coil switch on each.
     
  4. You can accomplish that switching scheme on a standard 2 coil pickup.
