I picked up a Kramer bass yesterday with a JV squier pickup in it. I had a JV squier (1st edition) without it's original pickup.... recorded the difference in sound between that and the Seymore Duncan SPB-1 that was in there. While I was there recorded some other things too.... this is with a cable going straight into the back of my iMac so it's not great sounding. strings.... Warwick streamer is DR peacock blues a few months old. JV is DR fatbeams about 2 years old (! yes I know) and the Kramer possibly is DR sunbeams.
