    I am looking to upgrade the pickups. Any suggestions on what brand or model. I am into funk and alternative. Or would changing the pickups even make that much difference with such a low end bass?

    I think those pickups are probably fine. Why are you thinking of upgrading them? What kind of amp are you using?

    I am currently using a fender pro 800. I can never seem to dial in my sound with my bass. I have switched heads and pre's several times. I feel like the fender is an excellent head but it just seems like my bass is lacking.
