    Not necessarily, but the Duncan's are the same as either Bart's or EMG's depending on the model, so there is at least some that are the same.

    I actually don't have the bass here at the moment. There isn't some kind of standard for these 5 or 6-string basses that have soapbar pickups these days?

    These pretty much look like any Korean 5-string pickup, be it a Dean, Ibanez, LTD, BC Rich you get the idea...

    what are the dimentions of your stock pups? in the product descriptions there is a link to the dimentions of the pups.

    i think youll notice a difference. i used to have an ibanez 490 bass that i replaced with duncans and it was much better, more definition and a bigger overall tone.

    Replacement active soapbars for 5 string?

    Which active Bassline pickups would i need to replace the active neck and bridge in my Ibanez SR485? Looks like they would be either the Phase I or Phase II. Would their be much of a difference in sound since the basslines use ceramics which doesn't sound too promising.
Working...
