I want to really do up this BASS! I hear duncan/dimarzio pick-ups are real good for it and I want to have GOLD BRIDGE/TUNERS!!! And I hear flatwound Fender/Rotosound strings work well with it.
Any Advice would be much appreciated.
Depending on what sound you're going for there are quite a few other pickup makers so research in the electronics subforum is advised.
