    The neck PU in my 2000 MIM active jazz V is dead and I need a cheap replacement. HAs anyone tried the Carvin H50N stacked humbuckers? They're only $50 and the only ones I've found to buy online so far that work for 5 strings. Any ideas? It has to be less than $70 and should be for sale online, I don't feel like having the store order one. Thanks.
  2. I have heard good things about very good things the Bill Lawrence pickups. He designed the pickups used in the Fender Roscoe Beck 5 string. Anyway, I'm not sure that they are the right size, but you might want to check out his J45's. The price is right at $48 and I'm sure if you called him on the phone he could tell you.

    Did you find some pups that fit? If so...what did you get? Did you go with the Carvins?
