    My wife just asked me which blouse she should wear to work today.

    Isn't your question about on the same level?

    ok my mistake..
    i play old school rock, jazz and heaps of funk(slap)..i really want that vic wooten sound..but i also want like a warwick thumb sound aswell..nice smooth bottom ends..but snappy tops for the slap and pop...my bass is also active..there are just so many bartolini active 6 string soapbar pickups..i dont know which ones to buy...and which will match the sound im looking for..does anybody have any ideas?? :confused:

    I have never really liked the Bartolini pickups... too throaty and airy sounding. I modded my Ibanez Soungear 6 by installing EMG soapbars and EMG 3 band preamp with parametric mids... That setup gives me all the sounds I need, from slap to fingers to muted thumb-style.
    ps... as far as I know, Victor Wooten uses EMG's in his Fodera's too...
