    Well, actually any kind of soapbar pickup for my Gibson Grabber. I heard soaps were the best way to go. Problem is that I can't find one anywhere. I also heard it is too hard to get it from Seymour Duncans shop because they take ur name an # but never get back to you. Any other suggestions on pickups for this bass and WHERE I CAN GET A HOLD OF ONE. I'm fiending for one of these like those crack heads with their rock.

    Is one of yours broken? If so, you may be able to have it repaired/rewound by someone. Also, "soapar" basically just means rectangular pickup. They come in different shapes and sizes, active, passive, alnico, ceramic, cheap and expensive. You don't necessarily have to buy one from Seymour Duncan, but if you do, you would probably buy it from a dealer rather than direct from the company.

    So, maybe you've got to do some more research on what exactly it is you need. Things like dimensions, how it mounts, how much you want to spend, etc.

    Maybe a Grabber expert will check in and give you some advice.
