Pickups for bass guitar also include the Humbuckers which are dual coil systems designed to eliminate the hum and provide a full clear and undistorted electric bass. Humbuckers are similar to J Pickups but wider. Bass pickups can also be categorized as passive or active. The main difference between the two is the fact that active pickups require battery power while passive pickups work without batteries. Active pickups have a pre-amplifier that helps cut the hum, boost the frequency, and control the bass streaming from your guitar in a more effective way. So those are some of the key issues you'll need to consider when looking for the best bass guitar pickups.
Now that your bass is physically together lets string her up! Whatever your bass string of choice is, installing them properly will ensure good tension, a snug fit and long lasting strings. incorrect instillation will result in buzzes, dead spots and dollars wasted from broken strings. When you unwrap the strings they will be pre-coiled and ready to go. You will need a pair of wire cutters and a tuner. First take the G string and run the very tip through the bridge's G string slot, up past the saddle, under the string tree and past the tuning post.
This is why you want to make sure that you have a diagram that you can use, but where do you get them from? There are a number of sites online that offer you schematics for making up these types of cables, as said before it is not that hard, but you will want to make sure that you follow the instructions perfectly if you are doing to have a fast connection to use in your home or office. You will find that the cables have a very distinct color code to it. There are many different colors used in Ethernet wiring, but most of the time the common colors are used all over the world. If you are going to find the right setting for this type of thing you will want to make sure that you spend a little time online.
Remember, on a top mounted adjustment turn your allen wrench clockwise to tighten the neck and straighten it, or counter clockwise to loosen it and curve the neck. On heel adjustments its the exact opposite! The more curved the neck the higher the strings will be from the fingerboard, the straighter the neck the closer. On a fretless neck you want the action to be as low as possible to allow for the pleasant buzzy "Mmmwah" sound. It is possible to set the action too low in which the "mmmahh" will be squelched. A good indication of where your neck is at is either a buzz at the first 5 frets which indicates a neck that is too straight or a buzz at the 7th fret and up which indicates a neck that is too curved. Holding the bass at eye level against a strong light and looking at the very edge of the fingerboard will indicate the status of the neck curvature. You want to set your neck as straight as possible until you get buzzes on or about the 5th fret or lower, then back the neck off with quarter turns until the buzzes go away.
