Hey, All. I posted this here rather than the luthiery/repair forum because it's not specific to a repair or actual tech work. Let me preface this by saying I realize what I just scored is not even close to thinking about being anything like a real Stingray, nor is it in the same universe as MM products as far as quality. So, couple days back I snagged an Arbor brand Stingray copy. It is passive. Surprisingly, it sounds and plays pretty good. Cost me $65. I have no desire to make it active, and I'm not sure I'm even going to mod it. But anyone here have recommendations for a replacement hb pup that is designed for a passive bass? Does EBMM make such a beast? I was considering a G&L L or M series HB pup...not sure it would drop in and fit right, but I can handle that. Any other suggestions? I'm also considering killing two pots and just having a volume knob and new jack. Not sure yet. I need to play with it amplified more. It sounded ace in the store, but I have no amp currently. I appreciate any input. PS: I will say, though I've owned dozens of different types of basses in my 40 years of playing, I'm a pretty dedicated P player. But every time I have played a real MM bass or guitar I have been most impressed. They are the ONLY active basses I have ever got on with. I borrowed an old 2 HB Sterling model from a guy years back for a series of gigs and damn it was nice. Be a long time before I can afford the real deal, but you may have a convert here. Love to have a fretless Stingray someday with a maple fingerboard with natural finish body and black pickguard. So classy.
