    A friend of mine recently gave me a weird little bass pickup that says "Huber Guitar" on either side. Its a little smaller than a j with 4 large covered pole pieces, i dont think its made of plastic but its painted with some kind of sticky black paint. the wires come out of the back center (joined together in a grey tube) and are grouped in brown, red, orange and green, and black, white and blue.
    can anyone indentify this thing?
    becuase it looks so different i was wondering if it might be an acoustic pickup.
    Does anyone think this would be worth installing in my ibanez pj? if it is acoustic, would it still work with normal strings...
  2. There is a guitar maker out of Germany whose name is Nik Huber.

    Here is a link to an article written about him.
