New here so hope I am posting this in the right place.
I'm looking to buy a fretless bass kit but have a question about the pickups.
My mate bought one of these: http://diyguitarkits.esellution.co.u...diy-thru-neck-
And has finished it and it has turned out really well and sounds good.
The low B string maybe sounds a little weak and I have a feeling that this could be due to the stock pickups being passive.
I don't have that much experience with building basses - only ever did a precision style bass which turned out fine, but I really like the way his one turned out and I am wondering if there would be much involved in fitting active pickups instead of the passive pickups that would be supplied with it?
A lot of people say 5 / 6 string basses are much better with active pickups? Would you agree, and do you think it would be do-able with this kit?
