I intend to do this bass-making extravaganza with an explorer body. what pickups would you recommend? I play Iron Maiden-ish metal and alternative-ish stuff.

Look into seymour duncan's or Emg's.

Active or passive?

Steve Harris uses a Seymour Duncan Basslines Quater Pounder precision pickup so I would guess that is your best bet.

I'll recommend Nordstrands of some sort. If you want jazz pickups, the NJ4E, otherwise Dual Coils.

Yes, the neck would fit.

Hmmm...You'd have to have it routed.

Did you try www.warmoth.com or something?

Yeah I only intend to replace the pickups with other active humbuckers not to rout anything. Any suggestions on good active humbuckers?
