    Has anyone else here noticed pickup discoloration directly underneath the strings on their pickups. I have a set of Bart soapbars in my bass and the pickups are starting to look like zebras. It isn't really noticeable with the strings on, I really noticed it when I restrung last night. The pickeps are turning whitish underneath the strings.

    I am not concerned about the pickups, it is purley superficial I am sure, but I am curious if this is a common occurance or not.
