    Hi All,

    Short of getting something custom made, outside of Thunderbirds, and in a more 'conventional' body, what options are there that use Tbird pickups? Think Mike Lull PT4.....but more affordable. Tried the Epiphone Embassy Pro but didn't like it. What sub-Mike Lull options are around please?

    Thanks!

    I made this from a MIM Jazz bass and Gibson Thunderbird pickups:

    The Thunderbird pickups were quite dark and smooth. Less gritty than the '60s Thunderbird pickups and their various reproductions.
