really sweet rivoli with dimarzio m1 and custom wound curtis novak bridge!! i basically asked curtis to build me this pickup and described to him that i wanted "more of everything" and he delivered!! the bridge sounds amazing!! when i got the bass it was the single pickup version. basically i wanted to be able to install a bridge pickup myself so that i could put it in a different spot. the stock placement is a little to far back for my taste so i had curt wind me up this thing and i placed in more of a stingray area or jazz pickup area. it worked great and sounds awesome. the layout is 2 vol 1 tone and a 3 way. the volume pot on neck pickup is a push coil tap pot so you can make it a single. i like to run it single neck at 80% and bridge at 100%. dont let the short scale fool ya this thing will move some air!! Bass comes with hardshell case and has all new pickups and wiring. its ready to rock and worth every bit of 750.00 shipped thanks my brethren !!
