My TBC5 finally got shipped.

  1. But I have some modification in mind.

    It's basically a Stingray with a 2band eq.

    I am looking into putting new Hi fi electronics.

    The tone I am looking for is something that can get Jean Baudin's general tone(hi fi and woody sounding to me) and thatof Trevor Dunn's Alembic tone.

    So, some kind of MM pickup and some pre. Any suggestions?
  2. Also something without exposed poles would be nice.

    I played Ivanmike's Toby and it had covered soapbars, and it was real comfy to play. Perhaps even a pickup that's arched instead of being flat.
  3. Basslines MM should nice, or if you want to be more mellow, get a Bartolini.
  4. Bump.

    Could someone maybe move this to pickups? I was dumb enough to post it here.

    Tell us what you think of the TBC5. I would try it out before deciding that it needs an upgrade.
