Hi all, So I have an MTD Beast that I still love (wenge fretboard, maple neck, basswood body). But I finally bought a new MTD (Z4, dual soap bar, active), because the Beast electronics seemed to be crapping out (original Bartolinis in there). I’d like to swap the pick-ups now (and having a new bass feel Ok doing it), and ideally get the following qualities: 1) remaining passive (want to have a passive back-up to swap at show, and don’t want to drill body) 2) want it to sound like a J-bass, and probably more leaning vintage since my Z4 is more of the modern sound. 3) something that will draw the growl out that I feel is inherent in that wenge fretboard. that said… very open to community thoughts and suggestions - fire away!
