    Anyone know of any basses that offer dual musicman style humbucker configurations. I know of olp which are hard to come by or HH stingrays which are a bit expensive. I've seen a few Warwick's but I'm looking at rockbass level/pricepoint so I can experiment on it without feeling guilty of ruining an expensive bass.

    I'm looking for a powerful sound so I might purchase a g&l Tribute. Currently playing a fender modern player jazz which I love apart from the jazz shape neck and the weight. I might dremmel out a cavity under the scratchplate but not sure how much of a difference that would make so would rather keep it for recording and take a lightweight to gigs.

    I’m reasonably sure Warwick has a rockbass version of the corvette $$.

    I’m addition to your list, there’s also the Fender Standard and/or Squier Dimension, which would be affordable and offer a double humbucker configuration.

    Thanks for the response.

    I don't think the dimension bass has mm style pickups they look like a different shape so I wouldn't be able to swap out pickups or are they the same?

    The Warwick corvette is an option I forgot about
    But man its fugly. Shame they don't do a streamer as $$

    Buy used. G&L tributes are cheap

    I just bought a second hand l2000 tribute series. Sounds almost perfect in some ways (powerfull, hifi and agressive) but a bit disappointing in others (just a tiny little bit too "clacky"/ lacking mids and sustain. Can't get harmonics to ring out and fret buzz). Maybe needs a setup.

    For my usual practice routine through my practice amp with headphones it's unusable. Seems to be distorted, probably clipping from hi output. I was hoping it was the battery but it's not.

    I doubt it will be good recording direct with a di but might be ok micing it up through a cab. I think it will be great for playing live though.
