I'm building a 5string wenge/mahogany thru-neck fretted bass. I'm really digging the simple look of the Anthony Jackson pPesentation Foderas and was thinking about making this bass a single soapbar, no preamp, with pickup covers to match the neck lam striping and just a slider for volume and MAYBE another for tone. I thought that'd look cool... I have a couple of EMG 40DCs lying around, and was wondering if one of those would be any good for the job? I've read they're maybe not so versatile/don't respond well to EQing? Also I can only get slider pots in a 50Kohm (EMG recommend 25Kohm), would that be OK? Obviously any EQing would be done via the amp, so for the record I mainly play funk and jazz through a MarkBass LMII and goliath III 4x10 cab. Thanks!
