The MM5.4 is the 5 string version of the MM4.4. Its coils are split in basically the same fashion, only each row of magnets has a 2 string coil (B and E) and a 3 string coil (A, D, and G). Just as the MM4.4, this pickup can be split and remain hum-canceling in any configuration: front coil, rear coil, series, and parallel.
Wired in parallel, you can expect classic Music man tone—scoop, power, and zing! While in series the midrange is given an extra hand in facilitating scoopy scandalousness. This pickup's powerful tone can be most accurately facilitated through choosing a Lakland installation, where the three way switch selects front, rear, or parallel coils. With this MusicMan style pickup handling that extra fifth string, the tonal possibilities that may arise from coil switching through the 5.4's perplexing vibrations will surely leave you satisfied.
