Rio Grande Muy Grande '51 replacement pickup

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by SmallFace, Aug 14, 2002.

  1. I have an early '90s MIJ Precision '51 Reissue that I would like to customize. Right now I have the opportunity to buy a Rio Grande Muy Grande '51 replacement pickup at, what I would say, a very nice price. There is not very much to read when doing a search on this particular model, and therefor any information would be greatly appreciated! Anyone? :)

    I've installed 2 RioGrande pickups a month ago on a cheapo Fender copy, and they're really very good.

    Punchy, with a lot of definition, and that deep warm growl you usually find on Bartolini PUs.

    I can't speak for a Pbass type.
