    What pups should I throw in this guy? I’m going for a gutty sound to use with nylon strings. Opposite of my boutique Jazz Bass Sound. Dark Star? As you can see, they’re kind of unique. Music Man style on the bottom and a big ol square up top. I’m willing to modify to fit but don’t want to move the placement.
    Thanks

    That's very understated for a Musicvox.

    I would keep the mudbucker in there as that will get you all the 'gutty' you need. I would see what you can get installed in a MM-style humbucker cover. Quite helpfully they've used a MM-style pickup in the bridge, so you have options here! I've epoxied Thunderbird and Precision-style pickups into empty MM covers before today, if that helps!

    Man, I got it years ago. They've upped the style factor since then.
