My better half bought me a DiMarzio Model One bass pickup for Christmas, and here it is in my Midtown Standard.

Warning - the Model One is a direct replacement for the old school sidewinder "mudbucker" pickups which Gibson used to use.  It is not a direct replacement for the modern TB+ pickups masquerading as mudbuckers Gibson are using these days.  I had to take the chisel to the pickup route to take a few mms off each side before it would fit.  That'll teach me to assume stuff.  Had a spare 500k push/push pot in the spares box so I wired it series/parallel.  Parallel sounds nice, series is beefy but a little less boomy than the stock pickup.  Haven't had a chance to use it in a band scenario but it's a definite improvement on its own.

Ah Moon Moon, it seems that Brett was wrong and your ways are completely unchanged.

 

The leopard never falls far from the tree.

What I do is work out if I can afford something, then I use that information as part of my decision to buy it or not.

Why, that's just crazy enough to work.

 

I just sign blank cheques and throw them at people.
