Hey everyone, Im new to this forum and just wanted to give you a little intro before I go into my topic. I have a 4 string MIM Fender Standard P-Bass with some Rotosound Swingbass 66's through a Crate BX50. Im into bands like Muse, Incubus, NIN, and some other. I play mostly rock. I plan to upgrade my bridge to a Badass Bridge II and replace the pickups (which is the hard part.) I was planning on upgrading my pickups somewhere down the road...like 3-4 months from now and from what I read, most people like the EMG's, Barts, and Seymour Duncans. However, I would probably like to keep my Bass passive (for no particular reason besides Im lazy) and wanted to ask people what pickups they would recommend from the three companies I listed. Im leaning towards EMG cause I hear they're cheap and decent but would like to get more input. Also just wondering where you guys buy your parts. Im located in Maryland. I just saw these pickups and Im interested...anyone have anything to say about them?
