    God, I know this is a serious stretch, but does Anyone know where one could get a replacement pickup for a Framus Star Bass circa 1963? I love my old bass (my first one. Bought it from a Dutch foreign exchange student for $20 on the school bus in 8th grade. I think he just wanted to be friends, it was his Dad's bass.) but the pickup is kid of coming apart from the metal it's encased in and it's starting to rattle. I tried a Hofner pickup, but the string spacing on the Framus is narrower. Is there a vintage style replacement pickup that is bar-style, without pole pieces? I know that Framus essentially became Warwick, I wonder if they ahve any old parts. I've been searching on ebay for a few years.
