    hey, im really new to this bass forum thing.
    im planning on getting a new bass in the near future,
    i currently own a washburn XB120LH (lefty),
    its an active bass also.
    because im left handed i dont have a huge sellection like
    ye right hand players out there, could someone give me
    some advice please?

    i was also thinking of changing the pickups
    on my current guitar, but dont no much about bass pickups?
    heard burtolini are pretty good?
    any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  2. Personally, I like the sound of EMG pups but Bartolini, Seymour Duncan and DiMarzio are all of good quality. The type of pick up you use depends on what kind of sound you want and, of course, what sounds good to your ears while fitting your budget.
