Hey all, This is an open discussion on whether I should use EMG pickups or Bartolini pickups to get the best tone for this bass. I really value everyones opinions and I would like help in making my decision. My custom bass is made of Zebrawood. Here is a description on this wood: [B]Zebrawood[/B]: This wood is very heavy with a very distinctive look, open grained with light and dark brown stripes it is becoming more and more common in the bass and guitar world. Its weight and sound are similar to Walnut and/or Hard Maple depending on the application. It is difficult to find in thick pieces, but it is more commonly available for laminated bodies where it excels. This wood may be oiled or sprayed clear, either way this wood is also very beautiful. I have access to both EMG pickups (soapbar EMG 40P5 - Neck Position, and EMG 40CS - Bridge Position), and Batolini pickups (Bartolini 72M45C - both positions). I love versitility and presence in my sound so I want to know which pickups I should use. If you can give me your opinions that would be great.
