    I am planning on building a Warmoth 30" fretted 4 string and am wanting as big, thick, rubbery, booty-slamming, reverse-cowgirl tone as possible out of it.... I'm talking about a serious brick house kind of bowel perplexing thump. No modern, hi-fi gender confused (am I a guitar or a bass?) kind of tone - just that sweet, juicy, thick round goodness. Can it even be had in a 30"? I don't know... any recommendations for pup or pre?

    There is only 1 choice that compares to this level of bootylicious-of course I'm referring to the Rio Grande Muy Grande Precision Pickup. It's even from Texas too!

    Thanks for the Rio Grande tip - I like the the hype on the Muy Grande Powerbuckers: "WAY HONKIN' BIGGER!!!!!!" They might be what I am looking for.

    Wow. You'd even have a place to set your beer with that one.
