I have a Dean Zone Xm bass with a single soap bar pick up. It was my first bass but I've outgrown it and want something that offers better tone. Unfortunatly, I can't afford a new bass anytime soon, so I think its time to upgrade my electronics. If I replace the soapbar with split jazz pickups, I should get a better tone. Only I've heard people says its not worth changing the pickups on a bass with a basswood body because of something about the wood not resonating or something. I personally think that's BS, but I don't want to drop $150 on new pickups only to find that the tone has remained the same. So what do you guys think?
