So if a bass has EMG's does that make it really only a metal bass? or can it be played with other styles....im looking to get one and idk what to get.......Or for basses can you kind of pull off any sound?

I've played and heard what EMG HZ's sound like on a bass, and they really are very nice sounding, I'm not too sure about actives for EMG's on a bass, but the HZ's I heard sounding awesome, very clear and defined it didn't get mushy at all.
And You can use them for a variety of styles if you wanted to.

man, as its been said on this forum before, just because of what's in the guitar are mainly used in x genre, doesnt mean you cant use them else where

Well put. John5 is a good example of that. Although Tele's do get pretty sweet tone for just about everything.
