    Does anyone know of anybody that makes a PUP that will fit in the T-40 cavity. Since I bought one I was just kind of wondering.

    Thanks

    hmm...good question! :D

    I read a bunch of reviews at BGRA and Harmony Central.
    The consensus seems to be that each pup is actually
    2 single coil "blade" types with a very high output. As far as
    the size of each one? I have no clue. They might be "standard
    humbucker" size (2.75" / 70mm by 1.52" / 39mm).

    If you wanna' stay w/passive pups, the DiMarzio X2N-B should
    work, i.e.; two blade type coils per pup, 4-conductor wiring to
    maintain the switching options. AND they have a stoopid high
    output (500mV)...

    I emailed DiMarzio a while back...they're still being made and
    they fit a "standard humbucker" rout. You can order `em from
    a DiMarzio dealer or from this German online shop --

    (with black or white bobbins) for about $108USD a pop.

    A RioGrande "PitBull" may also work, i.e., they fit a humbucker hole.
    I dunno what the polepieces are like tho (cylindrical or blade) or what
    kinda' output they have.

    They're available with chrome or black covers from ~$105 to ~$110USD
    from MusicToyz -- http://musictoyz.com/rio.htm#bass.


    FYI...there's a wiring diagram for a T-40 at this URL :) --
