Today at rehearsal one of my bandmates gave me his Hofner 500/6 so I could work on getting it back into playable shape. At present it is missing both pickups. According to the Hofner website I looked at, the 500/6 used the same 511B "staple" pickups as the 500/1 "Beatle" bass. I poked around and found some for sale, but they are ~$150 each, for new ones. Does anyone know where I can get older pickups, preferably less expensive? Also, if I have to go with the new pickups, do they sound about the same as the older ones? I know what the newer pickups sound like, as I owned a recent 5000/1 a while back, but never A/B-ed it with an older one. TIA!
