Well finally got it done, I had an Ibanez SR785NT which plays great just didn't care for the metallic sounding high end. So I ordered a custom set of Nordstrands Fat Stacks then I also upgraded the preamp to a Mike Pope. The preamp has active/passive switch, 2 volumes, bass/treble stack and lo/hi mid stack and last is a passive tone with push pull for single coil. Wow I am so much more pleased with the sound without touching the controls. I will put sound samples when i get time. But it was well worth the investment!!!! FYI everything was bought from BestBassGear.com Max the tech was incredible, the passive tone /single coil push pull was a mod that was done since Mike Pope doesn't have such an item.
