    You can probably place any type of electronics in there that you want, which is what you want, right???

    This body was used for the Zeta Prism. I had one and while it was a gorgeous bass, I never warmed up to the sound which was a bit too sterile for my tastes. Mine had an EMG p/j setup and a piezo in the bridge but some had just the piezo or just the humbucker. Plus I was a spaz on fretless at the time.

    Here's a link for more info:

    Your post caught my attention because Sheldon Dingwall, maker of Dingwall basses, based his Voodoo series of basses off the Zeta Prism shape. I own a '99 Voodoo Zebra and really dig the body shape. The lower part also looks similar to a Kubicki so hey, great minds think alike??

    Anyway, that's besides the point. You might visit his site and email or even call him directly to pick his brain. I'm sure he could steer you in the right direction and get you started searching for a used elec. pkg on the 'Bay or something. Get a Bart NTMB or something, or get really wild with just a Midi pickup from a Roland unit.

    Have fun!
