Which should I get? I got a cheap Mighty Mite equipped Cort Curbow with a dead preamp recently, and want to upgrade it. However, I feel the mic lacks quality, so I was considering upgrading the entire electronics package (but run passive, only). The size of the routing is identical to the EMG 40 / Bartolini M4. I was just looking at the EMG 40TW, is this a good pickup(s)? It could easily be wired to occupy the 4 knob / 1 switch control layout of the Cort/Curbow (switch between single and double coil, as well as separate volume and tone for each pickup, if I've understand the description correctly). Then I also took a look at the Bartolini M4. I'm under the impression that it can be wired series/parallell, and in that case, I presume I can do a VVT (or VBT) as well as a series/parallell switch (which would leave only one dud knob). Are there other alternatives? I really don't want to go all the way and flesh out the money for a new preamp unit for the bass, as I don't see the need for it as long as I've got an external one. A good passive (I know the EMG is active, but still) wiring scheme is ok. Input appreciated!
