Hello there, i am working at a guitar store for a week and i tried an Epiphone Thunderbird Pro IV there. And this thing kicks ass – i am really into that sound now. But i personally dont like the T-Bird because of its weight, bad balance while playing with a strap and so on – its also 500€. This T-Bird is an active by the way. Now i want a sound that is at least a bit similar with my squier vint mod JBass. So i came up with the plan to switch the pickups to active EMG's Do you guys think this could get me satisfied or do you have any other ideas?
