    Has anybody out there ever fitted another pup in the neck position on a Musicman ? I remember the old Sabre`s had a 2nd pickup but they never bothered with the idea again. I think you would have to move the bridge pup down a bit, but it could sound fantastic. I know the Bongo is out there, but i really don`t like the shape.
     
  2. Well... EBMM ia putting 2 pickup versions of the Sting Ray and Sterling out, post NAMM.

    The reason the Sabre was a failure, was due to the magnetic pull of the neck pickup being too strong and pulling the strings down to it, making it unplayable above the tenth fret... To the best of my knowledge, :D
