Ric HB1 humbucker in Guild Starfire bass

I like them so much in my 4003 that I put one in my Starfire, too.
Sounds great, no more AC hum, and looks very slick compared to the stock single coil Bisonic these come with.

It's been framed! :lol:

Cool idea. If I had that bass I'd also put one right by the neck. :wink: But, that's just me. :D

Yes, I kept the original Bisonic surround to cover the pup cavity edges. But it also looks good without it.
Ha ha! It is framed, like a work of art!!
