    That Europa Stereo looks pretty cool. I wonder how it sounds?
     
  3. that doesn't look like 3 P-pickups to me...if i could only find that Pic of Jeff Ament's 3 P Bass...it was a hammer P-bass copy with 3 P pickups and musicman pots (routed one volume for each pickup and a tone knob)

    Looks like 3 to me. I wonder if there is a way to pan the strings. Like 90% to the left for E, 50/50 for A and D, 90% right for G? Seems like a cool enough idea.

    Relman, after you go to that page, click the Europa Stereo button, over at the left, to see the bass we are talking about.

    that looks like a modernized version of something out of entwistle's arsenal!

    they have an interesting jazz style bass too. not to speak about their guitars...
     
  8. When I first saw the title I thought you meant putting three halves on a six string bass. Now that would be interesting!

    I have two basses with two precision bass pickups on it, Fender Elite and Gibson Lee Sklar-- I particularly like the Sklar, whose pickups are situated much like pickup 1 and 3 on that bass, though the bass side pickup is mounted closest to the bridge, opposite of original p-bass pickup placement. I love the bridge pickup sound, so rich in comparison to a single jazz.

    The Elite's two pickups are pretty much in the same position as the Europa's bottom two, perhaps a little closer to the bridge.

    The Europa does look interesting, though I can't see any point in its split string "stereo" hookup- makes no sense to me.
