This 4-string Music Man Stingray replacement is voiced like the original 70s Stingrays, for a more organic response and feel. Seymour Duncan has constructed a MM pickup that captures the feel and warmth of the originals. All the vintage 70s MM tone can be found in this version, which uses oversized alnico 5 rod magnets, together with our unique coil windings to deliver an extended response at both the treble and bass ends of the frequency spectrum. Compared with the ceramic version, this pickup is both warmer on the bottom, and more detailed on the top. This is the tone that changed funk, rock, and slap forever. This pickup is a drop-in replacement for 4-string Music Man Stingray basses. It may fit into OLP instruments as well, but check the dimensions of our pickup (on this site) against the size of your OLPs pickup slot to be sure.Combine with our Music Man replacement preamp for a complete setup. NOTE not for use with Music Man basses that have a 3-way blade switch. Hand built in Santa Barbara, CA, the alnico Music Man replacement pickup uses oversized alnico 5 rod magnets, Forbon flatwork, 4-conductor leadwire, and is vacuum wax potted for squeal-free operation.

A meaty sound. A fine stink-generator for funk to punk. Can beat its way through a crowded soundscape or play well with others. Whichever you prefer.
Installed in a homemade P bass copy with a MusicMan bridge pickup. Alder Body with a 09 Mexican made J Bass neck. Tone is excellent. The alnico can give you more of a Ricky tone IMO. A great match for our fun project. The go to bass for my son.
This pickup made my Stingray copy come alive. Great lows, mids ,and highs.
