    Does anyone know of a replacement pickup for a '79 Ibanez Musician bass (4 string)? The size of the old pickup is 3 3/4"x 1 5/8" . It almost has the same look as a Stingray, but with only 4 poles instead of 8. I can't seem to find a manufacturer who makes a pickup that will fit. If anyone knows of one I'd apprecirate their web address or phone number.
    -Thanks!

    Welcome to TB! This really belongs in the "Pickups" forum - I'll move it there.

    I think the bartolini bb4cbc will fit. It might require a little bit of widening on the route, but I don't think it will. I agree that the pickups and preamp on this bass can be noisy. On mine, with the passive tone at zero and the preamp on, I catch radio stations!
