    I want to upgrade the stock passive BC Rich P-Bass Pick Ups in my twin P Warlock Platinum Series with actives. I like EMG pick ups, however I'm not sure which series would be the best for this bass, I play mostly Hard Rock and Metal. Anyone have any suggestions for new pups for this beast? The don't have to be EMG but i do prefer EMG's. I was also thinking about replacing the bridge with a Gotoh bridge. would this be a good idea?

    I love the standard EMG P pickups, and I think they would be a great choice. It still has much of the same "character" (ie uber quick attack and present top end) as the EMG DC pickup, but with a rather more controllable bottom end, and slightly more present mid-range, which does help you sit in the band mix rather better. All IMO etc.

    I agree with this. I'be used standard EMG PUPs from 1980something to 2013. I've always played hard fast music and the EMG's never let me down.
