    I have a Yamaha TRBX174 and I've been thinking of upgrading the pickups to something better than the stock ones. There are two that catch my eye: EMG Geezer Butler PJ and the Seymor Duncan Quarter Pounder PJ. I was wondering which of these two is the better fit for me. I mainly play fingerstyle and the styles I play are usually rock, blues, metal and pop. Their price is similar, but which of this two do you reccommend?

    I've have the Geezer P in one of my basses for about four years now I believe, previously it had the Duncan QP in it. I'd say the GZR is your better bet for the styles you play, I'm going to go out on a limb and say that most people here on TB are going to recommend that pickup over the QP. The Duncans are quite hot and have a fairly prominent scoop in the midrange, which often leads to disappearing in a band mix. The GZR is a great classic Precision tone, very balanced across the EQ spectrum and seems to work for just about any application. Plus the quick connect is useful for folks less confident about soldering. Hope this helps!
