So I'm getting inventive again. Instead of doing the EMG ABC + Active Tone + EXB, I went with a BQC System. I love the tone shaping ability and generally everything about the preamp, but it's made me want more. I currently have Passive pickups installed in the bass. Yes, proceed to yell at me because it's a Rickenbacker 4003S. I kept the original electronics and pickups, but I've crafted a custom pickguard to use the Seymour Duncan 4003 replacement set, but I will admit that the neck pickup isn't quite what I'm wanting. EMG does not make "drop in" replacement pickups for a Rick. I'm fine with that because I intend to mount pickups to the pickguard, just like from the factory. I am aware that you can use Guitar pickups on a bass, but I honestly have no idea what EMG guitar pickups would sound best in the stock neck and bridge 4003 positions. Ideally I want similar output at both spots (something that every single Rick setup does not have, as they all seem to favor the bridge). Please keep the "why are you killing a Rick" comments to yourself. I am here to learn about EMG guitar pickups that are best voiced for bass, and that is how I intend to use the information gathered.
