Going to replace the pups and electronics in a bass that uses a P/J pup configuration. I just can't decide what I want to go with. First off I only have a 100 bucks in the bass, 2015 Squier FSR Jaguar short scale. The neck on it is one of those that just feels really good. Great playing bass except for the electronics that are shot. So do I go with an EMG GZR P/J set which I can install in about 10 mins or less? Or... Do I go with a Hum-Canceling Aguilar AG 4P/J-HC 4-string P/J Pickup Set and an Emerson Custom Prewired Kit, V/V/T and output, that uses 250Kohm pots and a premium 0.047uf Emerson Paper in Oil Capacitor? Or... Do I go with a Seymour Duncan Quarter Pound P-J Bass Set and the same Emerson Custom Prewired Kit, that I would use with the Aguilar pups? Or... Do I go with a Seymour Duncan SPB-4 Steve Harris Signature P-Bass Pickup and a Seymour Duncan Apollo Jazz Bass Pickup? The Apollo Jazz is actually a linear humbucker, not a single coil although it looks like a single coil jazz pup. I would use the same Emerson prewired control unit with this setup as well. For me it really comes down to cost, and do I feel like soldering or not. I already have a EMG GZR P pup set I put in another bass and it's a great setup, and easy to install. So do I play it safe and go with what I know, or expand my horizons so to speak and go all out on this thing? My soldering skills are above and beyond what the Aguilar or Seymour Duncan setups will need. And of course the EMG set is plug n play. EMG - $179 Seymour Duncan / Emerson controls - $135 + $79 = $214 Aguilar / Emerson controls - $199 + $79 = $278 Seymour Duncan SPB-4 / Apollo and Emerson controls - $89 + $95 + $79 = $263 My 1st choice is Seymour Duncan 1/4 pounder set. Not enough difference in costs over the EMG to worry about. My 2nd choice is the Aguilar set. At 100 bucks over the EMG set though now we have to stop and ask is the extra dough worth it? My 3rd choice, to be really different, the Seymour Duncan SPB-4 P pup set with the the Apollo Jazz bass pup. Almost a 100 bucks more than the EMG set, but I think I would really be happy with that setup. And of course EMG comes in last place just because I want to try something different than my last up upgrade I did.
