    I've been looking at the Brice ASB-1 bass and it looks really good to me. I've heard that the pickups are only so-so and wonder if anybody makes replacement pickups for an EB-3. The pickups look the same in the ASB-1 as in an EB-3.

    Off the top of my head, dimarzio makes an HB that looks like it could swap with the neck pup. Other than that I'm not sure what's available.

    There's actually two; the DM Model One, and the Will Power Neck that could replace the neck. They're also 4 wire pickups so you have series/parallel/single coil options. The M1 often sells for <$25 on ebay.

    No idea about a substitute bridge pickup on that one, though it looks like it might be similar in size to some of the small guitar humbuckers. Some guitar pickups are also excellent for bass. In this instance you need to find one with blade polepieces to get around the string spacing issue.

    wd or allparts makes the big neck and the small bridge pickups for eb3 replacements. I would give the brice a chance before orderingr replacement pickups though.
