Guitar pickups in bass?

    So I've read that early Ric's had toaster guitar pickups in the neck. I've already saved up to get a new bridge pickup for my faker (£150!) and now I'm moving onto the neck.
    Acesrus in the UK do toaster guitar pickups super cheap and I was thinking of giving this a try.

    Any opinions/ thoughts/ advice?

    I'm not a tone chaser in the senses I want it to nail the Ric tone. I just want it
    To be usable and the bridge pickup in there is mega noisey (not in a good way) and a Ric neck pickup will add another £80 onto my project.
  2. guitar pickups should work provided the magnetic field covers all the strings of your bass.
