Yo. I owned one of those early "repros before repro was cool". The

The tiny single pole pieces in the pup are small enough that any
string bending, or indeed lack of proper string alignment IRT setup,

IMHO, a great candidate for a Duncan QP pup replacement experiment,
which might not hurt that funky sound too much but could add a little
more "voice" if you will. The one I had got the pup rewound (while
owned by a friend; we traded that bass back and forth a few times) for
more output. Louder, brighter, still funky. --D-y
