    Hello all!!!!
    Next week i'm going to a custom guitar shop to order myself a custom 6 strings fretted BG.

    I have no idea whatsoever in all those wood types and pickups types (i don't mean passive and active - i mean companies- EMG ,DiMarzio ETC....) or what's better bolt on or neck trough.

    I have read many threads about the kind of wood and pickups but still i feel like i could use a little help.

    I play mostly jazz, funky and ethnic music.
    I know it can't sound 100% likw the real thing but the sound direction is to be like yamaha's TRB (the kind that patituchi use).

    can Anyone of you bass parts expert please help me and recommend me what should i use.

    Thanks in advance.
    Answers are highly aprecciated.
