    I am buying a brand new fender J and was thinking of getting the Sadowsky preamp and pickups and installing them in my fender. Anyone tried this? I think the only thing that would be difficult is the 4th knob placement. Would I have to drill a hole for the 1/4" intrument cable on the outer side? Is this worth it in improving its sound really?

  2. did you mean a Jazz V? if not what is a jazz B?:confused:

    I have tried putting Sadowsky pickup in J bass, with J retro as well as with Sadowsky outboard pre.
    But it doesnot produce sound like the Sadowsky jazz.
