There is a risk that, after the temptation placed in my path by @Bridgehouse
, I'll be acquiring a bass.
Or, at least, I'll be acquiring the parts to build a bass.
One option is the EMG PJ set of pickups.http://www.emgpickups.com/pjset.html
I've no direct experience of EMG in guitars, although I've read various comments about them being sterile or too forceful.
Are they better / different in a Bass? Would you consider them, or is there an obviously much better option?
