    I have a Ibanez ICB200 which at 1st i really liked the tone on it but now since i have gotten a American Fender Jazz and a Custom Bass it has really not been sitting to well with me tone wise.

    Now i was thinking should i replace the PU's

    Can anyone give me a hand on some Minihumbucker replacement's?

    I was personally thinking to go for some TV Jones so could if you have tried them try to explain how they sound for me?

    Thanks a Bunch

    Haven't messed with mini-buckers per se'. The Bart Ric replacement bridge is a small HB and you could use a pair of them. Both SD Ric replacements are HB's. The Bart can move beyond the Ric tone but the duncans are pretty Ric. Seems a couple guys I know have been looking for some Duncan or Schaller mini's for some time. EMG may have others as well but they've got the Stienberger style pups - the neck it seems is internally a P config but the bridge may be an HB. Using the same pup bridge and neck is not uncommon and will yield different tone by virtue of it's postion alone.

    TV Jones of heard "of" but that's all.
