Hi Watt, I've been playing old t-birds for a couple of years and love the tone I'm getting from the humbuckers - kinda deeper sounding than other pickups. Since the 'birds are so delicate, and I prefer a fatter neck anyway, I'm tossing around the idea of getting a beatup Fender Tele or P-Bass and putting some humbuckers in that. I seen to remeber that you had a bass for awhile with that kind of configuration. What was your experience doing that - any drawbacks? Also, are there any other pickups that you've run across that have a similar deep tone - old t-bird pickups have been a bitch to find recently. I'm not a fan of active pickups - I'd prefer to stay with a passive solution.
