Okay, heres the story:
My friend and I went to Guitar Center this weekend, and to our surprise, we found a beautiful used Spector. He fell in love with it and now has it on lawaway, but the question is now, what can we do with his old bass (http://www.bassguitar.pe.kr/gallery/peavey/fury2.jpg)? I've been helping him with it lately (replacing broken pots, a new nut, ect...) but he wants to put a new pickup in it. It currently has what looks like a fat, single coil soapbar in it, but it could be a humbucker in disguise, I dunno. We'd rather not have to re-rout the pickup cavity. Any recommendations on a good replacement?

Check that stuff out, those are probably going to be your best bet, as far as replacement pickups go. You'll want to measure everything first obviously.

And maybe some one can point this out to me, but why the hell is there a finger rest below the G string? Or what is that thing?

I think it probably has something to do with pick playing... Hell knows..

Actually, they aren't. The measurements are different. [url="http://www.delano.de/products.html?&cHash=fd9ecb1a5f&tx_smtdelano_pi1[series"]=5&tx_smtdelano_pi1[strings]=5&tx_smtdelano_pi1[system]=37] These, and these (scroll down, you'll find them) are drop-in replacements

the finger rest thing is a remnant of older bass designs. Back when bassists played with their thumbs instead of their other fingers.

Indeed, vintage Fenders have them as well, and they in theory facilitate thumbstyle in the neck position. I never found them that helpful, the bridge, or a pickup cover, is much better.

Im not sure it matters whether its single or humbucker from the pov of p/up replacement. i would guess humbucker from its size and solitude.

yea, those soapbars are looking good. I'd have my friend re-rout it for a split P and either a J or a big arse humbucker, but thats a pain, and the existing pickup is in that awkward middle position D:
