    As some of you might know im getting a Custom shuker bass.
    Im getting a maple neck/fretboard and swampash body with some yet undecided top.

    Im looking for a fat slaptone, somewhat stingrayish or cirrus, and a nice soild sound for rock/heavy stuff.
    the choice is between
    EMG or Seymour Duncan ASB2 Active Dual coils.

    could anyone by a chance post recordings of both pickups.. slap and fingerstyle?

    With the slaptastic woods you've chosen, I'd almost go with an all barto setup to even it out. Get the warm lows. With those woods it should be a mean slapper to start with. EMG's and the like might make it even more bright. Just an idea...
