    has anyone played a musicmaster with jazz bass pickups? I'm thing about buying one (because it's short scale) and installing jazz pickups to get rid of it's crappy tone.

    There was one on eBay about a month/month and a half ago, just as you described:

    If you get one, before you go hacking holes in it, pick up some of the Dimarzio or SD Strat sized pickups with rail type pole pieces. Can usually be found cheap secondhand on ebay (and easily resold if you don't like them), and some of them are excellent sounding.

    yeah, i know a guy who used rain-type strat pickups in his, had a rout made for a bridge position one too which sounded pretty cool, especially if you used say an outboard pre or something.

    i kinda want to do up a bass like that just for mucking round on...
