    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)
  4. eurostrt.

    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.
  6. oh...he he....my bad...

    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.
