    i have two stingrays at the moment, and i kinda want to experiment with one of them. right now now i have a bartolini pickup (came out of a flea bass) and i'm wondering what it would sound like in my stingray. would it sound anything like that wal bass tone on the chili peppers BSSM album? that's the tone i've been after, and i dont feel like laying down cash for a wal bass. would the bartolini work for this, or is there another aftermarket MM pickup i could try?
