Did it with the emg p/j and the emg BT setup. I'm an emg guy and I hated them in that bass. They sound thin and scratchy in those. I would go bartolini's . Their warmer n fuller in that bass. Aggie pre maybe? Spector tonepump? I would do them both though (pups n pre). The old stock afr ibanez pups are actually pretty good and sound good recorded as well. Just my .02.
