So, I have a thread on this bass on here from when I got it. It had a new neck because the dude I bought it from broke the truss rod and sold it to me that way, so I fixed it. So, here I go with playing the crap out if it! I'm just not to happy with the sound I am getting from the pickups... So, I am considering swapping them out. What I am curious about is: My bass doesn't have a pick guard like most jazzes. It does have active electronics in it. Now, as far as sound, I have a EBMM that gives me crazy good growl and rock/blues tones. I just want to have something with coherent tonal options. Going for a jazz sound. Like solo style stuff. I want thick, clean and defined. What pickup and preamp combination should I be looking at. I know there are so many...I want to stay active. Oh, and it's a 5 string bass. Thanks guys.
