I'm aware this is a VERY cheap bass but I've managed to get the set up incredible. This bass plays more comfortably than my MIM P and a Warwick Thumb I took in a trade (both set up very well!) I've been messing with another cheap bass ( LTD F-104) and the pickup control is amazing. So much clarity. I'd like to bring something of that tonal nature to my Washburn. I've looked at all the EMG sets and I'm not really sure what to pick. It's a single split coil setup. If you guys could help me choose the right pickup I'd appreciate the help. This is my first Talkbass post. I'm feeling positive regardless of all the negative comments people make about this forum being elitist. I just have a cheap bass that plays great...now I need it to sound great. I play some dive bars and I don't want to take my nice gear in to get trashed if I don't have to. Thanks! Jon G.
