    Probably couldn't change the tone MORE than this.
    Going from growly ken smith pickups to clear, hi-fi EMG's is like going from Cognac to Vodka. I like both pickups and have owned a Smith and a different bass with EMGs. I think Smith soapbars would make for an awsome fretless, but I also like the sound of fretless w/ emg's: they're just very different. My personal view is that the bass isn't worth the money being asked, but maybe it would be to you.

    Hope this helps.
