i was about ready to buy the sr800 till i read a bunch of people saying their electronics sucked. i was all set to buy it because i really like the slim neck and i've decided i want an active bass. however, i don't want a crappy active preamp that makes a lot of noise. that's pretty much why i'm upgrading in the first place. is there another bass out there with the really slim neck and good active electronics, or is there a way to upgrade the soundgear's preamp inexpensively? or is the sound not too bad to worry about?
