    I am fixing up our church's youth band bass player 's Peavey Millenium 5 BXP bass After changing strings and doing a full set up on it I plugged it in and realized that the bridge pickup is almost dead. Maybe this is why he said it didn't sound very good. Looking for a fairly inexpensive replacement pickup for it. It measures about 4 " X .75". The current pickup has a solid cover but exposed pole would be ok. The kid doesn't have much money so Duncan, Bart, EMG and the other major brands are out. Any ideas? I see that Wilkinson makes one but I can't find measurements for it.

    Contacted Peavey to see if we could get a replacement pickup for this bass. They emailed back and said a replacement is :eek:$72.00:eek:. For that kind of scratch we might as well drop Fralins into it.

    *Entire bass new $260.00 :bassist:

    *One replacement pickup $72.00 :scowl:

    *How does this make sense? :rollno:

    I was going to say GFS, but they unfortunately don't have any 5 string pups.

    *Yeah, I already looked at them too. Saw that Wilkinson makes a cheap one but only source I have found for them is an eBay seller in China.
