    Its a matter of personal preference. On my Q6, I had Bartolini's and I HATED the sound of my friend's with EMG's, his sounded sterile to me. Bartolini's are known for being warm, well-rounded pickups.

    I never had the pleasure of trying a quantum-series bass with Lane Poor pickups, though. I've heard nothing but great things about them (until they went out of business . . .)

    I second the Lane Poor vote. They sound amazing with a Modulus. Bartolini's "warmth" sounds more to me like enhanced midrange & I don't care for it. My second choice behind LP would be AERO.
