I am currently playing a Dean Edge Q4 ( I have a DP Custom 5er on order). This year, I switched to playing bass after a lot of years of banging on a 6 string. I enjoy playing bass much more thn I ever did playing guitar. At any rate, I am thinking of replacing the EMG hZs with active EMGs...two questions, is this a sound move? If so, what would be the recommendation as far as pickups? As I know very little about bass pickups, I would like some help. I love the Dean....the weight, action, neck...everything. I dont feel bad about putting the money in the Dean as I damned near stole the thing on EBAY. Any help would bee appreciated. Thanks.
