Vintage Matsumoku Hollowbody Pickups

    Hello everyone,

    I'm hoping that someone can point me in the right direction here...

    I have vintage Matsumoku hollow body bass bearing the Raven badge. It's the same as the Univox U-1835 & Aria 5120, there are also similar Lyles, Epiphones and Conrads (model 5020). Problem is, the pickups are gutted. The rest of the electronics are fine, I just need to replace the pickups.

    Has anyone had experience restoring one of these basses? Has anyone had to go looking for pickups (or replacement pickups) for these late 60s/early 70s MIJ basses? Does anyone have a set of pickups that they're willing to part with?

    Thanks in advance.

    Any help is better than none! Thanks! I'll post a pic in the Aria thread.
