    The question is too broad as another poster said here....

    I would install a pickup that suits the bass in question, doesn´t matter if it costs $200 or $1500.

    It would all depend on:

    • Configuration of the pickups
    • What kind of wood the body and neck is made of
    • What kind of sound I´m looking for in that bass
    • How much I´m willing to spend on the pickups, no matter what the bass itself cost
    • etc.etc.etc.etc.

    The short answer to your question: I don´t know.
