    Hi,

    I replaced the pickups of my Tobias 6-string with 2 EMG 45J pickups, and I'm VERY happy with the result. Better B-string (I've always felt that the Tobias Bartolini's should have had a flatter top; the outer strings were too far from the pickups), more of a warm, yet bright, J-bass sound. Works well together with the Batolini preamp.
    See the Youtube video for a demo: (music starts around 8:00)
    Enjoy,
    Jaap
