    I have a LTD B-205 with EMG-HZ. I'm looking to switch those to either Bartolini, Basslines, or Kent Armstrongs...which is best?

    I've got a B-305 I'm gonna upgrade the pickups on too, I haven't decided on which ones either.

    Depends what tone your looking for. Bartolinis will give you a more natural sound of bass. Not as punchy as EMGs, but bassier IMO. Basslines sound more like EMGs, good slap tone and punch. I've never used Kent Armstrongs, so can't help ya there.
