I have a G&L L2000 Tribute 4-string that I have modified quite a bit and now I'm thinking about modding it a bit more. I'm thinking about installing a dimarzio Model One right behind the neck (just like on an EB-3/EB-0). What I don't know is if the strings would even come close to lining up with the strings at that point. Some questions: Would routing out wood right behind the neck weaken the bass? What is the spacing between the poles on this kind of pickup? Do you think this is a good idea? I'm never going to be selling this bass, so I'm not worried about the impact that doing this would have on resale.
