    Hi!

    I don't know if it's a luthier's corner question, but...
    I heard that there were two types of Seymour Duncan pickups designed to fit MusicMan StingRay. One type was good, the other had some flaws. Could anyone tell me what was the diffrence, and how can I know which is which?
    I'm thinking of putting that kind of pickup to my bass, and I wanted to choose right

    Thanks for ALL the insights.

    There's a Ceramic version, and an Alnico 5 version. One is not better than the other, they are just different.

    Seymour Duncan says the alnico version has more top end and a warmer bottom. The alnico is more expensive.
     
  3. I have the alnico and like it a lot
