    My question is about the Quality of these Pickups.. If there is anyone who knows about the quality of sound from these Pickups then I'd like to know what do you think??

    Im going to be installing these Pickups in a Fender Active Deluxe V(MIM) using the Electronics that are already Installed..According to the Seymour Duncan Website, the pickups are Passive so im wondering how the sound will be with the Electronics in the bass??

    Also, should the B string be as loud as the other strings(?), because the main reason why Im switching P/U's is cause of it not coming through as loud as the other strings..

    (PS:i had already tried adjusting string height and pickup height.)

    I'm currently thinking about doing this as well because the passive Duncans say they have strong mids, which is what im looking for. Anyone have any experience with this?
