Whew! A Dremel!!! Nerves of steel and great concentration. Things I don't have. I just started using a router a couple months ago and I love the cuts it gives me. I've set my Dremel aside for awhile. Nice job though with that little Dremel !!! Turned out really nice.

So how does the sound of this compare to the previous p'up you had in there?

That is hip. Nice and even, still seems to respond nicely to your playing's dynamics. I've thought of one of these for my Ibanez as well, emailed Frank. Maybe if I gig steady enough this summer I'll go git one. Thanks for the sample.

I believe Harleyyy just posted a sample of his dual Dark Star bass round here somewhere. I like that it pick up some of the wood tone and responds nicely to dynamic attack.

Here's my main player '66 doing the same line. To be fair my '66 has very old passive EMGs in it.

My USA Lakland Bob Glaub with TI flats.

All these sound a little dark because the MP3 conversion.
