I changed the stock pickups on a cheap BC Rich guitar to a pair of EMGs not to long ago and boy, what an improvement. Now I'm thinking of changing the pickups on my LTD F-5E. However I've heard bass pickups doesn't effect the tone as much as guitar pickups? i.e. there is less difference between quality bass pickups and cheap bass pickups than quality guitar pickups and cheap guitar pickups. Any comments? I am in the process of upgrading my guitar amp (that is, buying a new one), so new bass pickups is still some time away. But curiosity doesn't cost, right?
