Hey need some help looking for a bass

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by nickalan620, Oct 20, 2004.


  1. Does anybody know of a bass that has active emg P and J pickups (like on a high end spector) that is not a spector. It can be 4 or 5 strings but i prefer the 34 inch scale.

    Older Warwicks had EMG's as an option. Every four string Streamer I have seen has had a PJ setup.

    Are you looking for a non-spector due to the money issue? I know a lot of companies make an active p/j setup, but not many have EMG's. The new warwicks all use MEC gold pickups, and the older Streamer isn't exactly budget priced.
     
  4. Yes, the money issue is exactly why i asked the question.

    After more searching, teh cheapest thing I could come up with that is selling new and in production is the 2005 Spector Legend 4-string, which has EMG-HZ P/J pups. New it is $500, but a used one should turn up within a few months on ebay or a music store for around $350-$400.

    Some Foderas have EMG P/J configurations... They're not too expensive :p

    A used Euro might be over your budget, since they are still pretty expensive. A Legend would be a really good choice.
