    I've got a pair of pickups heading my way that were inspired by Wal and hand built.
    I should have them in a couple of weeks. Alnico poles, 18mm spacing.

    Here are some pictures.

    I am now debating on which preamp to get. I'm leaning toward the Pope Flexcore or the ACG 01.

    Any thoughts?

    SGD's Wal clone preamp should do nicely :)

    I bet it would be a perfect fit. Unfortunately SGD has said that the pickups and pre won't be available seperately. And we don't know when they will be released.

    I am looking into the Audere 4 band pre as well.

    These appear to be MPU's pickups, are they not?

    ACG Preamp. I had one in my G&L L2000.

    You no longer have it? How did you like it? Which version did you have?

    They are indeed from MPU. I am grateful that he agreed to make them for me. I should have a review soon!
    :cool:

    I honestly don't think you can do any better than the ACG EQ01 (well other than the EQ03 that's only available on ACG basses) as it is a phenomenal pre and will help with the Wal vibe. I prefer it over the Wal preamp actually.

    Yes. I believe I am going to go with the EQ-01, I'll just have to offload a couple more items.

    Received them today. Have a 4 band audere classic on the way as well. Can't wait to install!
