    Ive been thinking about how this would sound, and ive found a good deal on a new bart pup down here. I dont have any sound clips of flea basses, but would it sound that much like one? Flea basses have different body woods and a graphite neck/composite fingerboard. Anyone have some clips of a ray with these? Thanks!

    EDIT : my roscoe has bart soapbars in it... Would it sound very much like that or would it be completely differernt? I just read in some thread about the pickups on flea basses being passive... Was he talking about the pups or the electronics? Would this work to replace my MM pickup?

    rethinking this, should this be moved to pickups?

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    Man, I remember when people were trying to get the Flea Bass to sound like a Stingray, not the other way around! :p ;)
