    Well, then, I'll start us off right! [​IMG]

    :D

    Please note, however, I no longer own the P-Update 5 (traded for a sweet Dingwall SJ4).

    Hey, I've already pestered Ken about his, I would be derelict if I didn't go after yours as well. :smug:

    Man, I wish I could get that tone in a smaller and lighter form factor. I miss that sound. :crying:

    Tom,
    How do you like the single coil pickups in the J Update 4 compared to the Celinder (kent armstrong) pickups?

    I have SD antiquity's in my J Classic, but it's passive.
    Thanks!

    Oh man, I think I felt my heart skip a beat... man, I tell you what, if I wasn't so totally convinced that bass was meant for you more than me, that'd have been a PRETTY DAMN CRUEL THING YOU DID THERE! ;) :D

    That said, remember our deal! :)

    I'm no Celinder officianado, but I don't know that I've ever seen an Update 6. . . I have seen a few Celinder 6's on eBay but not in the "traditional" jazz/precision direction that these are. Anyone else know for sure?

    Hmmmm... I was under the impression that the pickups in my J-Update 4 and J-Update 5 were both the Kent Armstrong Celinder pickups. I'll have to confirm that.

    I believe all the Update pickups are the Kent Armstrong/Celinders, and the Classic and Vintage models use Seymour single coils, for a more 'traditional' Fender type tone. However, I also assume you can spec these instruments any way you want, but I believe that is the 'default'.

    That was my understanding, as well. And for the record, both of my J-style Celinders are the J-Update models.

    I thought I saw polepieces on the pickups of the J Update 4, and thought these would be SD Antiquity or fralin pickups.
    Guess I didn't see that right.

    The only Celinder J pickups are the humcancelling made by Kent Armostrong. Chris is still working on his own single coil pickups.
    I have these on order on my Celinder fretless, with the new preamp. So I was curious how single coils work with the CP4 preamp.

    Holy carp! You are right! Those pickups do have exposed poles. I wonder how I can tell exactly which pickups they might be?

    There are some Celinder Update 4rs that ship with SD ANT II pups I believe..whether or not they are special order or Chris's option I'm not sure. I have talked to Glenn in the past about them.
    I do have an Update 4 with those pups and they sound a little clearer and more open to me as pure single coils..maybe a little more like a Jazz even than the Armstrongs..I do like the Celinder pups alot and they have their own take on the Jazz Bass pups but if SD made ANT IIs in a five string I'd also be trying them out on my Update 5.

    Sooo... someone mentioned new celinder single coil pickups and a revised preamp on a thread that I can't recall. Anyone know when they will be available?
