Hey all, I've been thinking about replacing my pickups ever since I replaced the stock Ibanez preamp with a Delano Sonar 3ms. I've been thinking delano since the preamp opened up the sound so much, and I have read that Delanos are much more full range than the Bartolinis I have in my bass now. However, the Delano pickups would have to custom dimensions. Considering that I am looking for a bright, open, metal oriented sound, what kind of pickup would be best (bar magnet vs exposed poles, etc.)?
