    My new Zoot five-string fretless is almost ready to be shipped. It is naturally finished ash, ebony fretboard, and has a 3-band aguilar pre-amp. I had specified Aero pick-ups, a jazz at the neck and a musicman at the bridge; but there seems to be a delay sourcing them at the moment (I believe they're moving premises).

    I already waited a long time for this bass to be finished and at the risk of having to endure more, does anyone have any recommendations for alternative pick-ups that would sound as good with this pre-amp?

    Btw a piezo is not an option. Thanks.

    I really like the Barts in my fretless... but... Bartolini has been a little backlogged the last few months so I may be offering useless advice. ;) But if you can find 'em, that'd be my recommendation.
