    Are there more basses that were standard equiped with a Lane Poor MM Pickup? (like the flea-bass) I've never seen one before

    Besides Modulus, several boutique makers offered them as a pickup option (e.g. like Fodera and Read), though the LP Humbucker was stock on the Flea.
    Lane was making 4 MM style pickups at the time. You could get a MM as a Humbucker (like the one in the Flea), w/2 wide aperture coils, w/2 narrow aperture coils or with one of each. These were Lane's descriptions for the way he wound them. David King has some comments about them here:

    I was lucky enough to get a Dual Voice MM direct from him. I put it in my Sterling and never looked back. It's too bad he stopped making them - they really had their own place.

    There used to be direct replacements for yamaha trb's back in the day. The six string ones are the same dimensions as a bartolini G6. I guess it isn't really answering your question but it's still cool to know.

    Actually I don't know that they were standard, but optional - Bart, SD's also available, one of which may have been standard.

    As Ron stated, the SD was/is standard on the Flea, the LP and Bart were upgrades.
