    I only got my SPector Q5 about 4 months ago, but whenever i plug it in to play, the guitar itself has amazing bass, but not as much tone as some others, i think its due to the low output of the stock pickups. are there more ways for improving the tone in this bass? as well as practicing and finding my own tone, such as changing the bridge? Strings? and Pickups? i really wanted to put some seymore duncans in but im not sure if they would fit? everything on my bass is stock. cheers

    I would go emg. That will help you reach the spector sound.

    I'm not a big fan of the sterile sound of EMG's in a Spector. I have two USA Spectors, one with Bartolini and one with DiMarzio Area J's. They sound more 'Spector' than a Spector with EMG's if that even makes sense :)
