    Does anybody have EMGs in their Ibanez? If so what do they sound like? I really want to put them in mine but I want to hear more frist. :)

    I put a pj set in my sr400 and they sound great. Popped em right in with no muss no fuss :) too bad the bass is trashed. I'll probably sell them off :(
  3. AlmightyPancake just got an ibanez that looked like there were some EMGs in. You might want to pm him.
  4. That would be my former Ibanez SR406. No EMGs, however the bass he traded me for it (Peavey Grind NTB) does in fact have a set of DCs in them.

  5. my local GC has a Doug Wimbish Ibanez with the emgs and it sounded awesome.

    Just threw in some emg pups in my sr496 the 40p and 40j that made a rather low output bass come alive. But I just ordered a emg BQS system preamp that should be here tomorrow. Im going to run it at 18volts (more headroom?) and with the higher quality and mid freq range adjustment I think it will take this bass to another level or just be a big wast of money, who knows?

  8. Ya, my Doug Wimbish 4 sounds great with its EMG's. Emphesis on 'modern sound' with neck-thru and ash body wings.

    Would the 40DC/neck and 40CS/bridge give me a nice deep warm sound? I am also going to install a BQC EQ.:)
