Ok, so he's bringing both the GK head & Peavey cab back, and I've directed him to a few different Ampeg heads: the SVT3PRO, the SVT450H, or the B2RE Bass Head. As for the cab it looks like the SVT-410HLF or B410HLF will do, depending on the head he chooses. I've gotta leave it up to him to decide on product & price after that, but I'll keep you posted.

Here's another question though: pups.

What do you recommend for an upgrade? I've told him to get a new bass altogether (his current bass is a Peavey Grind Bass 4 BXP NTB Electric Bass Guitar, which he's had for a while now, pretty much since he started playing), but money being what it is, a quick fix could be to upgrage his pups for a couple of hundred dollars, and upgrade the bass next year or so. What do you think?

Here's the link for his current bass: http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Peavey-Grind-Bass-4-BXP-NTB-Electric-Bass-Guitar?sku=511363

I was trying to look into the Alembic single coil pups (ala Phil Lesh, ca. mid-70's), but found no luck on them....maybe they don't make them anymore.

Another one I found off recommendation is the EMG's, though because I don't know a ton about bass pick-ups, I'm not sure what model to recommend to him.

Can you guys give me any insight?
