    I was wondering if it would matter if I install my MM PU in a custom bass that I am making Upside-down. What I mean is with the single mounting screw side to the top. Any info would be much appreciated.

    On a custom bass, I can't see why it would matter. AFAIK I haven't seen a lefty MM pickup.

    I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think it makes a difference. Why would you want to bo that? So it dosen't looke like every other MM style bass? Should be interesting. I found that whenever I play a MusicMan or MusicMan style bass, my thumb fits right into that groove between the 2 screws. Good luck w/your project.
