I have a non-reverse T-Bird clone (all mahogany)that I'm just finishing up on and plan on using either Barts or the EMG passive 35's until I can find some 'real' 60's pickups to put in it. Has anybody tried the passive 35's in a T-Bird? How are the T-Bird replacement Barts in comparason to the passive HZ'z? Please keep in mind that I'm keeping the bass passive with conventional vol/vol/tone T-Bird electronics with 500k pots. Thanks for your opinions!!!!
