MTD playability may suck me in again. Does anyone know if the MM-style bridge pickups are in the same place on both instruments? I thought maybe Gard or Adrian would know for sure. Since pickup placement plays such a big part of the sound I'm curious. I wish the Heir was offered in something other than burst over flame top - better value and I don't like flame all that much anyway. I know I could get a K4 and have a neck pickup added (or a Beast and have the bridge pickup changed) but I've never had that kind of work done and would rather get a bass with things how I want it to start.
