    Thinking of getting a Lakland 5. (DJ or Jo) Has anyone
    put a Sadowsky pre in the bass? I'm not in love with the
    J retro tonally. Is the Sadowsky an easy install? Is it a
    good match? Do the Fralins work ok with it? I need some
    opinions please.
     
  2. Why not use the outboard Sadowsky preamp? That would definitely be an easy install. Either way, the Sadowsky preamp was designed with passive J pickups in mind, so although I have no experience with it, I bet it would work just fine.
