Brethren, I am taking delivery of a Warmoth Gecko 6 in swamp ash with a flamed maple neck. Bass is routed for EMG 45 pups and I am looking for a passive pup in that shape: Bass will be run passive while I budget for a preamp (possibly the ACG filter $$). String spacing is 16.5mm so I am looking for a blade style. I play soul/funk/R&B and am seeking warmth AND clarity- Bartolini (too dark?) Aguilar (in this shape?) EMG options (passive?) price/availability is a consideration- looking to get her broken in ASAP! Thanks!
