    im going to be loading a mm style pickup into a 4 string fender p bass. im going to be staying passive (unless there is an easy solution i missed to put in a battery compartment.) the main pickups i am thinking about are one of the bassline pickups or an emg. I have looked into both of these and cant quite decide. any other suggestion are welcome as well. i mainly play alternative rock, along with a little blues, and have been learning some slap. thanks

    Since you said you play alt and blues I voted basslines. If you played heavier stuff would have said EMG or the basslines with their blackout 2band active eq preamp added.

    you may be better off buying something used based on the amount of work it will take to route that pickup

    Best of luck whatever you do though

    this is the body it will be going in it.
    so not really worried about routing. just have to cut a pickguard for it
