    What kind of pickups do you like? Usually the ones that fit the hole routed into the body





    Do your pickups humm? No, I do when I cant remember how the bassline goes.

    Tell me what you think are the best? Any that work and sound good.

    Seriously though, those are some pretty general questions. Its like asking whats the best bass. Or what is the best barley pop. Different strokes for different folks.

    Could you be more specific?

    Do you mean types as in brands or types as in styles?

    Peace

    EMGs have a darker overall tone to them. To me they sound very warm compared to Ps and Js and other Soapbars and stuff. For metal and stuff EMG is the way to go most of the time!

    Bartolinis. My Laklands, Pedulla, and Zon all have Barts. I love them more than spam.
