    What options are available for the newer style of MM pickups? They used to be shaped like this:

    But now they look like this:

    The shape of the older style is uncomfortable, so dropping in a pickup of that older style is not preferable.

    I put a Nordstrand MM4.2 in my Ray34. Im not sure if the SB14's pup is the same dimension but it looks the same to me.
    It was a nice upgrade although i would say the Nordy sounds a bit smoother and less aggressive than the stock SDMM pup.
