Okay, that may be a weird title, but basically I was interested in buying the Ibanez SR506 that has the Bartolini MK1 pickups in it. But after playing it on Saturday, I'm not sure they will be what I'm after. Instead, I'm most likely going to build up a 6 string Gecko from Warmoth and buy a couple of the EMG 45 shape Bartolini pickups from bestbassgear.com (though I'm not sure if I want to go with two of the quad coils, or two split coils). Anyway, I've read one post where the MK1 pickups aren't as good sounding. . . . . .and made in Korea . . . . , and that the USA Barts are better sounding. What's your opinion? On a side note, would I want two quads or two splits?
