    Would it be hard to slap a similar pu in a Stingray in the neck position????
     
  2. Just route the body and drill the wire hole. But beware that the string spacing on the poles is really set up for the spot its in. Meaning if you do add another pickup the strings my be a bit inside of the center of the poles.

    You can get pickup routing templates at the link below.

    My advise is to practice on a piece of scrap wood before you hit your axe.

    Thanks!

    To solve the string spacing issue; what if I bought something like a Lane Poor pickup like what is on Flea's Modulus 5-it has no visible polepieces. Or maybe something from Bartolini?
     
  4. Lanes are tough to come by, but the Barts would work great.

    I tried to look for a Lane Poor web page but couldn't find anything. I don't think it exists.I will take a long hard look at Bartolini.
