    While i was in singapore recently i picked up a musicman s.u.b and a seymour duncan mm pickup. I have been playing the sub stock since i got it and i like the tone of it. I actually bought the pickup because it was less than half the cost of what they go for in Oz.

    Long story, short, has anyone upgraded a musicman sub with a duncan pickup? Was it worth the upgrade? WHat did it do for the tone of the bass?

    I'm asking because i could probably get a fair bit more that i paid for the pickup if i sell it here in Oz so i'm trying ide whether i should install it or sell it!

    I just installed a Bart pickup in an SUB yesterday for a guy. Chances are you will have to rout the pickup pocket deeper - the stock SUB pickup is pretty thin.
