    I am thinking about getting new pickups for my Ibanez. I have Alembic P bass style pickups in a yamaha fretless(I baught it used and the guy who sold it to me replaced the stock yamaha pickups with them) so that gives me some idea as to how they sound. I like them alot. I have never played a bass with EMG's, but I like the sound Victor Wooten gets with his basses that have a PJ configuration.

    How do EMG's sound compaired to Alembic's? are they similar? I would definitely get Alembic's but they are twice as much as EMG's. Is the money worth it?
