    I just got a white carvin neck through body bass from a friend that I am fixing up. I would like to change the pickups but dont know what to get. I would like something that will give me a nice solid sound. I play funk/rock. So if any of you guys have any suggestions let me know.

    thank you

    Whoa! You are taking this Carvin downtown.

    Have you looked at the obvious, like Bartolinis? I really like those. Some people don't because they're so popular.

    Seymour Duncan Basslines are real nice.

    Since you're hot dogging this thing with a whammy bar, you might consider Rio Grandes or Aero's. That would be a little different.

    I would have mentioned Lane Poor right off, but they seem to be in the "gone but not forgotten" category.
