    Hi, i first post, but ive got something crazy to ask. Can anyone tell me if it would be possible to put a music man pickup into an ibanez sr700 with a bartolini pickup still in it? I love the chunk of a musicman pickup but the vesatility of bartolinis. Can anyone help me out? thanks. ehheh...
  2. I was going to give my experience with installing a MM style pup in a non-MM bass. But I kept mine passive. You're in a different game entirely seeing as the sr700 is active.

    From looking at pics online, the routed holes in the body of the sr700 for the pups appear wider & slimmer than a MM pup so the body would need to get modified and it might look funny having a wider hole in the body than what would be needed by the pup.
