    Hey Guys

    I am looking to build a bass in the near future and am kind of indecisive on pickups.

    I know that i am going for EMG J-bass style pickups but am not sure wether to go active or passive.

    Both have their destinctive sounds and obviously passive are much cheaper but am still indecisive

    lemme know what you think

    what will the body woods be? EMG J's on an ash body can sound overly bright IMO
