    I might be building a parts bass and I was wondering if I could use a hi-gain Ric neck pickup in mid position with pleasing results. Are the two pickups the same if you take them out of whatever covers they might be buried in, or are they actually completely different designs?

    I convert 4 string Rickenbackers to 5 string basses.
