SD NYC pus... Just a thought...

    I own a Greek odyssey custom 5 string bass and I am thinking to change the pickups. The woods combination is the same as the fodera emperor standard. So I was wondering, if I replace the pickups with the duncan nyc soapbars (the emperors pus) would my bass sound something like the fodera?

    Thank you and sorry for the (maybe) silly question!

    Those SD NYC pickups aren't the same as the as the Duncan/Fodera duals. From what little I've heard they are pretty different actually.

    If you want to cop the Fodera dual coil vibe I think your best best is probably a pair of the series wind Nordstrand Dual Coils.

    I think this video is a good representation of the sound.

    If it was me I'd be giving Chris Stambaugh a call. . .

    Hell, it probably WILL be me at some point. I ended up going for a 70's jazz bass vibe with my new bass from Chris, but I'd love a neck through five string with the Nordy duals too.
