    If I bought a Modulus flea bass w/ a bartolini pickup, but wanted to change it to a Lane Poor pickup, would that be easy to do? I know they don't make LP's anymore, but lets say I've allready got one.

    I just did the exact same thing and it's no problem. Unscrew the pickups from the body. Find out where the pickup wires are soldered to the electronics in the control cavity. Then unsodler them, connect the LPs in the same places, and you're good to go. Finally, screw the LPs in the place of the Bart.

    Hope this helps.

    Where did you get your flea bass? Was it when they still came w/ LP's?
