I've got a MV5 with two humcancelling jazz pickups. here's my question to those who have the same electronics: 1) Do you notice a difference in volume or fullness between between any of the strings? I noticed the G and D string seem thinner sounding than the BEA strings. (I wonder if this is an anomoly which is the reason for this post actually) I think the BEA strings are one coil, and the DG string comprise the other coil in this split coil pickup. 2) I tried the single coil pickups yesterday in this bass which Rodger sent me and found the sound to be fairly different....have you tried these as well? which do you prefer? I found the mid range to be more present with a much more vintage vibe, but with less edge than the split coil version. I think I prefer the split coils if they were more balanced and will ask Rodger if maybe another set might be the ticket. I know SD makes these pickups and have no idea what the consistency factor is.
