    Just finished installing some fun into my Gibson Grabber.

    The install was super easy, and required no modifications to the body. The pickup slide even still works. I did have to drill a couple holes in the pickguard. Sounds as good as it looks.
     
  2. Wow, soundclips!?
    That thing must rip it up... sorry I mean grab your balls!

    soundclip! Bass is strung with a new set of TI jazz flats.

    This is just straight into my laptop. The first half is slid towards the bridge. The second half is slid towards the neck.

    The Pickup is a good amount bigger than the standard grabber pickup so the movement isn't nearly as much as it used to be. All in all I'm really happy with the upgrade.
     
  4. Seriously I can't believe no one else has replied to this thread. The sound clip sounds pretty awesome and the bass just looks like a weapon of mass destruction. It seems to be lacking a bit of bottom end but I'm sure that's just how dry you recorded it (direct into laptop).
    I was always amazed at how darkstars can practically make flats sound like rounds.

    Very nice. I wish I could afford to try my hand at some DarkStar-ness.

    plus you can flip the ds around ( poles towards the back) to get another range of tones
