Hey guys/gals - was hoping you might be able to help me out on a bass player question. I'm working with some other folks on website for Michael Steele (former bass player for the Bangles, and a ton of other bands). www.mickisteele.net (click on "Instruments"). There is a section we want to add that discusses instruments - as a guitar player I'm fairly un-knowledgeable on the details of bass guitars. If you would like to help out, I need technical details on especially her 1971 Fender P-Bass, EMG pickups, and BadAss bridges. What advantages does EMG and /or BadAss briges give etc. Are the most commonly used EMG pickups always active? Also - if you have stories, met, worked with, etc with Michael I'd love hear them and add them to the site. I've always thought her bass lines were pretty darn good - a lot more than some people expect. If you've ever seen her play the Yardbirds "Im Not Talking" (singing at the same time) you'd know what I mean.
