Nice job! Basslines have a pretty good rep, I believe? Never played them, however.

Oops, I thought the question was do you use basslines pickups. I definitely would use them. They're great pickups, and relatively cheap. The only reason I don't is that all my basses (kinda by chance) have EMGs (other than my Hohner, which has EMG Selects), which are great as well. Of course, none of them have HZ's, because Basslines>EMG-HZs

It's just a type of EMG called EMG-HZ.

Basslines are awesome pickups for their price range, or overall anyway, really good for jazz/rock/hard rock from personal experience, i'd recommend them but are you sure they're seymour duncan's?

I had a Charvel 575 bass that came with Bassline's in it. very big improvement over the OEM's.

I added a j-2000 switchable preamp, and loved the passive/active choice, as well as the tonality of the pickups in either mode.

I like them a lot more than stock Fender pickups, although the bass I tried them on was a Japanese made Aerodyne so I'm not sure what the stock pickups on the US made ones are like.

After my friend replaced the bridge with a badass III and the pickups with SD Quater Pounders it sounded and felt a lot nicer.
