    Hey guys... and gurls, I currently have a jersey custom 5 string, not a huge name but very high quality sounds much like an ibanez SRX, recently I played a Cort Curbow 5 string ( the bass I originally dreamed of) and now the dealer is offering me a trade for it, the cort has active electronics while mine doesn't... but I love the growly metallic tone of my bass and want to know if I can still get that with the active pup because I've never played one before... I tried it out in the shop but the owner is a little quirky so I try not to stay around to long. Any ideas? I can't get my mind off this bass but I am worried about getting the wrong end of the deal as my bass is a little rare... and I play everything from jazzy fusion and grind to straight up heavy metal and occasionally country-looks ashamed- lol

    I own a Curbow 5 and Curbow 6, there haven't been too many tones I've been unable to attain. I find the Curbows can thump and be quite mellow.

    I think if you tell him you wanna make the trade, but need to be able to thump with the Curbow a bit... most retailers I've been to will let you take it home for a night.

    I have no idea what a Jersey is worth though.
