I'm building an ASAT style bass and I'm going to need pups very soon.
(Build thread in the Lutier's Corner 4 and 5 string ASAT-ish bass builds
I tend to favor aggressive modern growl over vintage tones.
Examples of my favorite sounding basses that I own are:
Steinies (active EMG pups, no preamp)
Alembics (Alembic pups/pre, Mahogany bodies, mostly maple neck with ebony FB)
MM w/2 band preamp
Spector (EMG P/J, Hazlab 9v pre, all maple)
Generally prefer J over P, but not opposed to PJ.
Specs on bass build are Mahogany body, maple neck, katalox (ebony-like) FB. Bolt on.
What do you suggest?
