Westone/Aria "Magnabass" pickup specs/differences?

  1. Don't want to hijack the Westone Club and I've seen plenty of others ask...

    Have a Westone Spectrum ST, according to the catalog it has a singleMagnabass I pickup.

    There's a I, II, III, IV, & V. What are the differences? Mine seens to be a pbass type but the III is as well?

    There's also a "Westbone mod" where you add the missing pole pieces to essentially make a humbucker out of it. Dual coils and 16 spots for slugs.

    Figured this was a part of the Cliff Burton lore...MBII in the black n gold.

    I have the same question about Westone Spectrum Bass pickups- the Magnatone I II or III pickups all used the same outer shell, but I can't find any internal specs for the different designations anywhere- does anyone know, or know where to get the info??
