    i dont know if anyones ever done this (probably!) but me and my guitarist buddie were sat around one day, and he suggested that a single coil guitar pup in a bass would be cool, so well....we did it.

    here it is, my P-Bass with a fender deluxe single coil. sounds good!

    whatya think?? opinions? :p

    Clips would be cool, as stated.

    How easy/.hard was the routing?
     
  10. I imagine the control cavity is under the pickguard so he probably just had to take out a lil piece of wood to route it...

    You think that's bad? Try routing for a Gibson EBO pickup. Took me a couple hours...

    Anyway, I've seen it before, a friend of mine has a Squier bass, a Bronco I think and he pulled out the original for a Duncan Cool Rails and it sounds sweet as hell. I'd consider it but I don't want any more holes in my bass.

  14. I think that would sound pretty cool. I'm not a fan of putting stickers on my gear though. I think it looks like I'm trying to show off. No stickers on any of my basses, [cough] guitar[cough] or bikes. Whatever turns you on though I guess...
