I have a Realist on the way, and I am thinking of trying it under the treble foot, as well as blending with another pickup. I know this has been touched on before, but am looking for some more recent opinions. My reasoning is, I think the darkness, body sound, and low end bias of the Realist would be a good match for the higher strings. Combined with something closer to the strings on the E side, to get a more direct and focused sound on the low strings. I am not looking for "my bass only louder", but a nice amplified sound that can, if necessary, be used for higher volumes. I am also thinking in terms of a small blender pre to mount on the tp with a panpot to adjust between the two pickups. For example, I could quickly change to all Realist for arco, or all of the other pu for a more modern sound, or somewhere in the middle depending on the music or room acoustics. The questions: 1. Is the Realist on the G side advisable or not? 2. What might be a good companion pu - BassMax, Rev Solo, Full Circle, Double Big Twin, Wilson, or other?...Stat-B on the bass side!?!?!
