    i have got a gibson t bird, and would like some advice on a few things. i am not a tech head so please be gentle

    1 - i want to change the pickups to emg's, but need to know what ones are the best for the bass.

    2 - i like the idea of dropping the strap position on the neck - what is the best way of doing this?

    3 - straps! where the hell do you get a decent length and quality strap for these beasts? i stand at 5'10", and unless i use a thin nylon strap, i cant get it anywhere near the position i like! i would like to get on where i can play it at normal length (crotch position)!

    Thanks
