    Does anyone know whether the bridge pickup in the BB series (424x, etc.) is a true single coil or a stacked pickup?
  2. mine has a alnico bar single coil passive pickup..

    Considering how much it hums, I'm going to guess single....

    Still love it though, but gotta shield it or something.

    I'm very interested in the new BB line basses. They look fabulous. I gotta check them out in person.
  7. Its a single coil for sure. Great bass, can't go wrong.

    It's completely single. They're meant to be "vintagie" so no modern stuff such as stacked pickups and stuff

    Yep - it hums like a single. Great basses, tho.
