Here are some of the latest feed back from the RJ neo's

Reed I can't believe the difference my bass sounds with the R neo pick ups. Now I have the highs that were missing . The pick ups I had in there before were great but the mahogany body and the walnut top was not allowing the highs so come out. So now that I installed the neos I'm am truly happy with the sound of my bass. More than enough lows growling mids and crispy highs. Now I have the slap tone that this bass was missing. Thanks a million. Now I'm keeping my Stambaugh :)

For anyone interested in the RJNeos. I've been testing these pickups, and found a few things that have set themselves apart from other higher end pickups i've used. The most noticeable attribute is the tonal range. You can dial in tones, from SUPERRRR FAT lows (almost sounding like using flatwounds) to twangy piercing(almost telecaster) highs. In the middle of that range you are able to dial out any mid tones you like. The great thing about having so much control is being able to dial in just what you want for the technique you use. From twangy Victor Wooten-ish slap tones to growling Marcus Miller like tones. But not just for slapping. There are just as many fingerstyle tones. Sharp and round to the extreme if you want. As a player that utilizes tapping techniques, I have so much use in treble which I get so much out of. I have noticed that my tone is more full and even. I installed them on a Cort Curbow, replacing a Bartolini Mk1. Before it sounded like it was in to way made out of wood. Which its not. No girth or warmth to my tone. After switching them out my bass sounds sooo much more alive. There is so much more of a body to my sound. I cant imagine the difference it would make on a high end bass.
