    It looks like the sort of thing that would go well with Darkstars, but that would probably take a fair bit of routing, since they are fairly large. Just to look at it, you could probably drop in a Bartonlini soapbar a la Mike Watt's EB.

    I would get them rewound myself. They are some cool looking pickups and I'd hate to see you stick Barts in there. I know it's just some Japanese sort of Beatle bass copy, but putting new pickups in there would destroy the feng shui of that bass.

    Or I'd get a second opinion and see if there's some easier way to fix the pickups.

  9. See if you can find some guild pickups that would fit, or would require little work to fit. Those would be similar in look, and I love guild bucker's sound.
