    even though i've been a bassist for almost 30 years, i'm a p/u newbie-never used anything but what came stock w/ the instrument. I have 4 basses w/ passive, 1 w/ emg-cs actives. where can i get a good overview of pickups? things like passive vs active, styles, placement, characteristics, wiring (series vs parallel vs humbucking etc. etc. thanks!
