    I preferred the EMG's (LJ-5 not VJ's). The Steve Bailey Fretless are my favorite set of SD actives to date but they're a darker different tone. All of these are in the Dimento J experiment in FAQ.

    Dimarzio does them and I think Semour Duncan. They always work well. Big output with better tone. Better than EMG for P bass.

    Oops. Read through the P bass thing. Those have no clue about.
