    Hello I'm Costumizing my Bass an Washburn RB-2500 Bantam from 2001 made in Korea.


    And I wanted to get some new Pickups..

    I was wondering in add this one: SEYMOUR DUNCAN SSMB-5D



    I wonder if this pickup will fit on my bass without problems?
    or do you recommend another one? which?

    I've just checked it and it seems that fits the dimensions are very very similar, I'll need to cut some wood , now I'm wondering where I'll open one more hole to put the fourth switch thing..
    but if it fits can i use this pickup?
  4. I had a Washburn like that and replaced the pup with a Bartolini something-or-other - very, very disappointing.

    I played it for a while & didn't like it - B very poor, - so I put it on Ebay & sold it with the original pup - I took off the Bart & sold it separately.

    After I put the original pup back on I plugged it in and was totally blown away by the difference - the tone was a little brittle, but the B string was huge!!! EQing made it sound wonderful.

    Too late, I was obliged to sell. Been seriously considering another one ever since.

    I find the Basslines above a bit on the scooped side for me - I had one on an Ibanez RD605.
