Post Hybrid EMG Melody / StickUp Bass pickup
I noticed Tom Griesgraber has a hybrid pickup on his Grand Stick. EMG/StickUp. Was that ever offered as an option or was it a one off?

AFAIK, you can contact Emmett and he'll do it for you.

If you go in stick.com it's not listed as an option however as mentioned it seems Emmett is willing to do special orders.

I wouldn't be so sure you can still get one, guys, I remember Greg saying it was really difficult and took too long, so they would not be doing any more. Can't hurt to ask though.

Cheers,

EG

Now that you say that, it sounds familiar. I'll just "stick" with my StickUp and be happy. About 3 and a half months to go.....

Rich, just as confirmation - I asked for this when I ordered last May (after talking to TG), and Yuta told me they were not offering it as an option. I decided to go with Stickup as well. Sounds like we're in about the same boat!

I've been playing through one of these for quite a while. I really love the pickup but I remember Emmett saying it was a pain to make. Plus with the addition of the EMG electronics to the Stickup housing, real estate becomes an issue and so you have to forego the volume controls.

The thing is, who really uses the Stickup volume pots anyways? I've found it really kills the tone.

Check the video for the Redeemer. It's basically a high priced buffer, but shows how passive volumes can be used if buffering is in place. Just thought it was a good demo.
