    Okay I bought myslef a NOS Dimarzio model G pickup with the intent of putting it into my heavily Sheehan-ised Squier Precision bass. But before I take out the router I would like to know if any of you have experience regarding this pickup.

    Just be sure to check that at the spot you decide to install it the strings will pass directly over the pole pieces. If memory serves, these are the same size as a regular guitar humbucker, yes? That makes for some pretty narrow spacing that most Fender style basses don't accomodate.

    I got an early BC Rich eagle that had similar pu's and ended up putting some EMG HB's in there for full coverage.
