Thanks, Yodasfro!

I messaged Geoff and he responded promptly. From his mouth (keyboard):

'well, this one is easy, this bass is copied off of mine. They are Bartolini pickups, custom housing I designed. The neck pickup is a single coil (vertical humbucker), the middle is a split-coil (like a P Bass), and the bridge pickup is a side by side humbucker.'

I have a pair I took out of my Modulus which looks just like that one (minus the neck pickup). Let me know if you are interested. I replaced them with Alembic pickups.

How's the Alembicized Modulus sound? That'd have to be a cool setup!
It's a work in progress. It doesn't sound nearly as good as the Starfire. It also doesn't sound as good as the newer TBX Moduli, but I'm not sure why. It's kind of midrange-y, which I thought the Alembic pickups would help, but not so much. It might be because of pickup placement.
