I'm debating whether or not I want to replace the pickups on my 5 String WMD Widow. The reason I want to do so, is because I seem to be getting some really bad buzzing and fuzz whenever I play a little heavier on my top 2 strings, when it's not in standard tune. I don't know if that's something that can be resolved by resoldering, or if I need new pickups. If it's new pickups I need, any recomendations?

If you're only getting it when out of standard, my guess is the action on your bass is bad, because the strings will be alot looser, they'll move around more and hit the frets.

To fix this you could use thicker strings for lower tunings.
