    You ever had the hare-brained idea to do this? Thinking about double bucking my 4402 just because :)

    Actually my recent experience with Roscoe and G&L basses has got me thinking I might like having two matching pickups instead of the J at the neck.

  2. Honestly that thought never crossed my mind but it's a great idea!!

    No, but I put a pair of Thunderbuckers in a 44-60.


    I have to say, I would like to try an MM-J as opposed to a J-MM, like the former Stu Hamm Washburn. I like the idea of keeping a single coil at the bridge, and moving the fatter, darker humbucker to the "rhythm" position.

    Nice! Love those pickups :)

    I'm thinking one really cool thing about doing dual MM pickups is that worst case is I just use the neck coil and I'm back to the same J/MM as before. But like you said..MM/J would be neat too and that can be done with dual MM's by using both coils of the neck pickup and rear coil only of the bridge!

    yup....I really think you will like it:

    This one has dual switches so I can make any pickup configuration I want....

    OK - truth be told, Carl Pedigo built this BUT it has the LH3 and Hanson humbuckers.....
