    I was thinking of purchasing a Dean Hillsboro Single in the near future. I love the playability of the Hillsboro, and the growling punch of a Musicman Stingray. Would anyone know if it was possible to change out the stock humbucker to, say, a Seymour Duncan Basslines SMB-4d (ceramic). Would there require a change in electronics and/or onboard eq as well? Or can the pickups simply be swapped?

    If you ask me, if it doesn't sound good now a new pickup won't magically transform it into a Stingray.

    If you want a Stingray, get a Stingray.
