    I have an extra Quantum 5 body (bare) and I'd like to start building it. I already have one Q5 with the EMG's in it and I like it. Would you guys recommend the Bartolini's in the other one or should I stick with the EMG's?? What is the difference in tone?

    Thanks!

    How did you happen to come into a bare quantum body?

    Sorry, forgot to answer your question. I have a quantum with emg's and a quantum sweetspot with a bart - and i love them both. Since you have one with emg's already, I'd probably go with barts.

    I bought a used Q5 and the seller had an extra body to go with the complete bass. It's been collecting dust in my closet and I figure that it's a good side project. I could use another nice bass.
