bass/pickup oppinions plz

  1. How does this sound....

    A carvin B5 with tons of uprades (stock electronics/pickups) playing heavy metal.....Does it sound like it would work for a while....?

    What kind of wood would fit that style?
    Mahogany?
    Koa?
    Walnut?
    Swamp Ash?

    THEN AFTER A FEW MONTHS AND DOLLARS SAVED...

    Looking for a warwick/musicman sound....punchy, snappy, slappy, great low end, snarrly highs....

    -What if I put a SemDun MusicMan pickup in the back and an MEC J in front? Would that work well together for a Musicman/Warwick sound?
    What other pickup options are suggested for a neck j/ bridge humbucker for that sound?

    -What would I do about electronic upgrades?



    Carvin provides the options that I want (left-handed, wood choices, upgrades, customizable...) But the electronics and pickups might just be a little too blane for what I want.

    -SUGGESTIONS PLZ! (remember, left-handed)
