Is this a new pickup in this Modern 4? Could it be a new single coil design?

HI

I dont think so, Joe.  Looks like Nordstrand Big Singles.  I had them in my 24/4.  Hopefully someone from the shop will chime in

HI

Just read on the site they are Sadowsky soapbars.  Sorry for the misinformation

This is our new Sadowsky 4 string soapbar pickup.  I think the longer, narrower shell looks much nicer.

Hey Roger,

Those slimmer pickups do look nice, but I still like the old ones as well.  I actually like both! 

Who came up with the idea for the slimmer pickups?

I agree  Cool
Is there any change in sound compare to the older soapbars?

There are 2 different shells for the BS. Actually Cary uses the shallower ones for his basses as well.

My BS equipped 5 string that I just ordered, will also have the new ones.
I myself, really like the look of open polepieces (like on the other design)
