    I have a Godin freeway, four string, thinking about buying some new pickups. Any suggestions?

    What problem are you trying to solve? That would help greatly in making suggestions.

    I know that bass well and I think a pickup change could help. For one thing the stock pickups seem a bit too mild for me. Also there's a lot of noise when the J bridge pickup is mixed in.

    I'd put in Duncan Quarter Pounders for the P neck pickup myself and change the bridge pickup for a noise cancelling type. Probably something from Duncan too.

    Otherwise that's a very good bass. Can't beat the quality for the price. Nice neck too. They're selling in Canada for a little over $500 currently. They beat most Fenders in my opinion.

    I don't know. Don't really know anything about pick ups.
    I'm at music school right now and am playing a lot of different stuff.
    Just maybe trying to improve the over all sound.
