This might be a silly question, but I am wondering what would be the difference if any between the vintage guitar based toaster pickups and the vintage toaster pickup as utilized for a 4001 C64? Any description I've seen, seems to be the same.

They are the same except for the mounting holes - the bass toaster mounting holes are threaded to allow mounting to the pickguard via retaining screws. The guitar toasters mounting holes aren't threaded as the pickups are mounted to the guitar top (with foam pads or rubber grommets to allow for height adjustment).

Thanks, antipodean. I have often wondered the same thing.

That's great if the pick ups are the same. My question would now be-can I use a guitar pickup toaster in a 4001 C64 bass as relating to the mounting? I assume the "bottom end" tone would be coming form the string gauges on the bass if the pick ups are identical otherwise?

Yes, you can, just use the appropriate sized screws and nuts to mount the pickup to the pickguard.
