And flat on the stage instead of raised. Maybe he likes the coupling?

He also added a box of Kleenex to the rig. Maybe he has a cold ... or something.

The monkey's higher, too ... LOL

Am I seeing things or does he have j-bass style single coils swapped into that Modulus?

I think it's an optical delusion. Maybe.

Agreed... probably. It sure looks like there's something going on there besides smooth EMG or Bart soapbars though... but swapping in J's doesn't seem like his style. If he wanted to experiment with pickups I think he'd just have a whole new bass made.

I have a feeling scoob is on to something...

Picture from TRI Studios 6/7/11

And now from New Year's Eve!

:shock: I AM onto something. Screws at all four corners, so they're not EMG or Bart. Maybe something like a Nordstrand?

I'm not that familiar with pick-ups but great find Scoob!

Almost positive this is the answer. the wood grains are different and I did notice behind Phil's rig there are 3 more Modulus basses, when I saw them at the Knick.

No doubt this is true - the woodgrain between the brigde and knobs gives it away.

I'm still curious what pickups he's trying out. They're not Barts, EMGs, Nordstrand, or Delano. So what's he up to?

Why does he have a Digitech multi-effects unit ontop of all that expensive rack mounted stuff?

My bassist friend owns the same model, and I never found a worth while sound on it. Too much latency and too much digital 'slush'. It was the muddiest, murkiest pedal I've ever used as well.
