    Hey TB'ers,
    After a whole bunch of searches and going through the archives I still haven't heard any real good sources besides buying used T-40 pickups as a replacement for the pickups on this bass. Right now I have DeArmond Gold Tones, and they work but due to the width between each string, the E string is a little lacking in power due to it not being over the coil. Anyways I just wanted to know if there have been any recent advancements or producers of a pickup or a remake of the vintage that I can get that will work better for this awesome bass I have, and if any of you guys have old ones you aren't using, I'd be happy to buy them off you! Thanks for the info gents! :bassist:
