    Hello All,

    I have a Nordstrand MM4.2 pickup new in the box (or tube, acutally).

    I would really like to trade for an original MM Stingray 5 pickup to put in a Tony Levin OLP.

    Selling price would be $110.00 shipped.

    Thanks for looking.
     
  2. Sorry, not too familiar with the Nordstrand line, but is that a 5 string pickup? I have a passive OLP 5 string and am looking to "upgrade".

    Thanks

    THX Tplyons, :D

    Exactly, I too am looking to upgrade my Tony Levin OLP (5 string) and happen to have this 4 STRING nordie for sale.

    I would like to do a trade for a 5 string Stingray stock replacement but I am open to offers.

    Are you sure that pickup swap is going to work? I just checked out the OLP Tony Levin bass and compared it to my SR5:

    It looks like the OLP has the pickup with "ears" and the Stingray has the "soapbar" design.

    Since you have a NIB Nordstrand MM4.2, have you considered exchanging it with a MM5.2? Carey makes the MM5.2 with ears specifically for OLP's basses: http://www.nordstrandpickups.com/bass_mod.html

    Msquared,

    Thanks for the info, my TL OLP has not arrived yet and I am trying to be pro-active.

    Looks like there is definitely a specific size for this bass.

    I probably will take your suggestion and go for the nordie.

    Glad I could help!

    I like the Nordie MMs a lot. In fact I got one for the above SR5 that I'm getting ready to replace the stock pickup with (so if anyone else is looking for a SR5 pickup...) :D
