I have a warwick corrvette std with active mec electronics. When I aquired this bass I was actually looking for a stingray, but the deal was to good to pass up. I Like the overall tone of this bass, but I find the bridge pickup to be kind of wimpy and I'm having trouble getting that low mid punch I wanted the stingray for out of this bass. I was considering adding an MEC humbucker in place of the current bridge pickup. This will be an expensive job however by the time I buy the pickup from warwick and pay my local luthier to route out the hole for the humbucker. I will also need to purchase a switch to change the humbucker coils from series to parallel if I really want to get the most out of it. On the warwick board I saw a person who was considering doing something simular, and he was convienced to just add another J pickup closer the the bridge. I understand how this is in effect very simular to a single humbucker pickup, but does it really sound the same? Are there potential phase issues? How would you find a complementary pickup to whats already there?
