As I understand the HZ line is EMG's passive pickup offering vs their active ones, but I do have an EMG 3 way 18v eq onboard as well

I think it was 79 when he switched briefly to the Irwin which had dual Split coil P's in it.
Your EMG HZ's should be the same size/shape as any EMG40 (measure to make sure).
I'd check out either the TWX or PX-5.
'78 was mixed. I saw him with both Mission Control and with the Guild. Probably depending on which bass was in the shop.
After those two, he used a Fender for a bit and then a G&L, but the first time I saw him with Brent, he was still using Mission Control (that was May '79 at Billerica and then UMass). I'm not sure when the Irwin showed, but it probably wasn't until the late fall (he used it on 12/31/1979). The shows I saw at MSG 9/79 were Big Brown.
