    I have Jackson JS3 and I wanna replace the stock pickups with EMG 35DC or 35HZ. My bass has 3 band EQ and I have no idea what to do. Someone offer help ?

    What do you have now, passive? If so, should be an easy swap but emgs will have quick connects so you'd need to cut the connector off and solder wires. If your pickups are active I'd image just wire the emgs where the old ones were connected. It's always gna be a hot, ground and hot wire for battery for each pickup. Again, have to cut plugs off. I have never heard anything good about hzs. Also, maybe consider the P&J on soap bar emgs for that classic Jackson concert bass sound.
