humbucking (quad coil) 5 string Music Man®-type bass pickups

The MM5.4 is the 5 string version of the MM4.4 and is split in similar fashion, except that it has a 2 string coil (B and E) and a 3 string coil (A, D and G). The pickup can be split and remain hum cancelling in any configuration. Front coil, rear coil, series, parallel… This pickup has all the basses covered, and is particularly suited to a Lakland installation where the 3 way switch selects front, rear, or parallel coils.

The industry never really adapted a standard for this style of pickup, and as a result we have at least 3 different spacing and cover combinations:

  1. Soap-bar shape with no ears and narrow spacing. These have a rectangular cover and narrow spacing that will work on original MusicMan® five string basses. $148.00 – purchase now
  2. Larger shape with ears and wide spacing. These will fit Lakland® and other basses with wider spacing. $148.00 – purchase now
  3. Larger shape with ears and narrow spacing. These will fit OLP® and other basses with narrow spacing. $148.00 – purchase now
