Hey, I figured I'd give the seymour duncan musicman system (pickup & preamp) a shot in my stingray ('92 model) w/ maple fingerboard and am in awe.. It's an INCREDIBLE system and yields some of the nicest tones I've ever heard come from this bass Experience in the past with bartolini musicman pickups yielded mixed results and totally changed the sound of the bass.. But, the seymour duncan system still has the 'ray character but is SO much better than the stock system in my opinion.. The slap switch is probably the coolest part and and the frequency centers are right on point.. Smoother, but still biting, highs and punchy lows and mids.. The range of tones is great, I highly recommend it Anyone else using a 'ray w/ the seymour duncan system in it?
