Rio Grande pickups?

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by steamboat, Jun 19, 2001.


  1. Anyone have any experiences with this pickup brand? It seems like their guitar pickups go over very well, but I can't find much about their bass pickups.

    Specifically I'd like to know about the Muy Grande Pbass pickup and/or the Powerbucker. I'm toying with the idea of a Muy at the standard P position and a Powerbucker at the bridge.
     
  2. I have their Vintage '51 PBass. It's pretty cool, but a little flat. I don't use it very much, except when distorted. I also have a Fender '62 PBass on the same bass and I usually use that.
