Just decided to start learning to play bass. I have ordered an ESP LTD B55. My wife plays an ESP LTD guitar and loves it, so I'm not concerned about that. However she has a much nicer model than the B55. I don't have a lot of info on the bass. I know it comes with ESP's passive pickups. I was thinking about changing the pickups to an active set. Thing is, I'm in a weird situation. I work in Iraq and mail takes quite some time. I might not even get my bass for four months. The real question is, do I have my wife get the passive pickups changed to active before I get her to try to send it out here or do I get it sent out here and then end up waiting another month or two after deciding I want new pickups? Any other newbie bass advice would be greatly appreciated, including links to articles and recommended videos.
