    I am upgrading my equipment and will be buying a new bass as well. I currently play a Fender Jazz, but I plan to get a ESP B-304. Do any of you guys have an opinion of that bass? I played one at the store and I really like it. I do however need to replace the pickups- what do you recommend? My band is a Deftones,Tool,Soulfly style groove-core outfit. Should I go with active EMG's?

    I always have a problem with buying something new that I think needs to be "fixed" right after I buy it. What don't you like about the ESP's sound and what are you trying to accomplish?

    It is just that the EMG's that come stock aren't active. They are decent but the actives are better.
