Quite possible, I'd guess. We'll probably never know for sure.the Newark Street pickup, at least when it first came out, is apparently a copy of the Dark Star, not a vintage Bisonic. So Fred Hammon may have very well been involved with the beginning stages of that pickup being reissued, one way or another.
I really like the bass, but don't play it much. My bandmates are all old school, and Fender is all they know (and P-Basses preferred). I'm OK with that, because I've been playing mine since I was 15, and it's still a terrific bass. It's funny that in all the basses I bought since I got the disease, the one I play the most is the one I've owned since I was a kid.
