http://www.[malware url removed].com/smilies/sign/sign0085.gif O.K. guys after a long while of indecisions what 6 strings bass to buy I decided to make my own 6 strings BG in a custom shop. My problem is that i don't know anything whatsoever about pickups and i have to decide what kind i want to buy. I've been looking in the FAQ and in the search to try and learn a little bit about pickups but i only got more confused. So i have a few questions and hopefully you guys can help me. 1.If i buy active PU do i get the EQ knobs to install on the guitar with it?? 2. somebody told me active PU don't get the sound of the wood like passive does , is it true or just nonsense?? 3.can i install one passive PU and one active PU on the same Bass guitar?? 4.what is the difference between the nerrow kind of PU and the thick (fat) kind of PU?? Many questions,sory i hope you guys can help me. If any of you have any recommendation about which pickups should i put i would love to hear it. I play jazz funk and rock and i thought of putting bartolini active pickups. Thanks in advance. I really appreciate your help. Adisu.
