I have this American Elite Precision that I really like, I bought it 8 months ago or so. It is very versatile and the neck is very comfortable... any way. I was planning to try a different P pickup just to experiment and was thinking to try a Pure Vintage '63 on it but some one from fender told me it can not be installed on this bass. I was really surprised. So I contacted Audere preamps and told them what I wanted to do, which is basically to get may be a different preamp but I wanted to keep the passive option as I really like it and don't want to go all active only, but apparently they don't recommend having both passive and active with their preamps, also I just wanna have only a 3 band eq, like the stock one on the Elite and its knobs and pickguard holes, and most importantly keep the passive thing with its tone control. So my question ... Is it possible to make the Pure Vintage '63, or any other vintage like pu, work with the Elite stock pre amp?. There is gotta be some work around it, right? The guys form Audere said something about installing coupling caps but they didn't really explained and they seem very busy, which I understand, so this is why I am asking here. I have played passive instruments all my life until now. I hope this can be done. Thanks for any info PS: Please don't hijack with other questions or situations.
