Well, I'm still searching for an appropriate drop-in replacement for my stock EMG 40hz pickups in my Schecter Studio5. I'd planned to use the new Seymour Duncan Exposed coil replacements for 40hz's, but I found my Schecter string spacing is WAY to narrow. I measured my narrow spaced Schecter and it measures out at: My Neck and Bridge string width total is 61.5mm & 64mm, SD recommended 70 & 74mm. Waaay off. So, I'm looking for replacements again. Here's where I'm at and looking for input please. Basslines SSB-5's EMG 40TW's (Still EMG's but active would be able to wire each of them Single or Humbucker via PullKnob or Switch) Bart xxM45c (Again, can wire them Parallel, Series, etc for more sound options) The basslines are the lowest cost option, then the EMG's then the Barts. The barts are almost 3x's the basslines. I'm just wondering others experiences with these 3 pickups. The Schecter is used as an alternative sound to my HH SR5 style OLP mm32. Thoughts?
