Hi JTM and Matt,
beware, the Realist does leave marks on the top (table)!
This is caused by the pressure from the strings and bridge
as the wood of the bridge is harder than the spurce
the Realist will slightly penetrate the top !
You can see the round objects causing these marks in the scan above.

Imho itīs not advisable do recommend this pick-up
because of the above mentioned.I believe itīs high time
bassplayers become aware of this sad fact.

Check out Bob Gollihurs pages but also view the link below.
Imagine in a few years time.....all these hundereds or
thousand fine basses with simular marks on the top....

Kind regards,
