so I need to swap out the pickup on my bass. I hate the pickups in it. It is a Traben chaos core. so it has 2 Lakland sized musicman pickups in it. I cant decide.... a pair of Delano MC 5 FE/J's and just do a direct swap and get the hum canceling nice and easy... or a pair of Delano Xtender HE's rout the body and find a way to hide the extra bits as the Laklands are about 1 cm longer then the xtenders... is the tone that different between the 2?
