I've been planning to have my first custom bass built and I am at the point of selecting electronics & pups.
I'm totally sold out to MTD Barts, Roscoe's as well but since they are manufacturer specific, I don't know what to buy instead.
My bass is gonna be: Alder with mahogany core or solid body alder with 5pc maple/bubinga neck with Indian or Brazilian rosewood. Hipshot ultralights and A type bridge.
So here is the tone I'd like to get: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aMOzAvmOvDg

Thanks for the comments in advance.
