I recently bought a Ripper that the seller wasn't completely sure about. I don't know much about pickups, but these pups do not sound like any Ripper I've ever played; they're extremely noisy and yet somehow very subdued. Since it's not a cheap bass, he is willing to give me a partial refund to fix the pickups. The problem is I can't find any store near me (Minneapolis) with experience with Bill Lawrence and a couple said they don't even want to touch them. Does anyone know where I can go and have any idea how much it will cost? The seller is just going to give me $250 if I don't know what I need.
