    I'm curious to see if anyone has tried a Bartolini preamp with a stock pickup in a Stingray 4 string. (I know it's been done out there in a 5 string and Sterling but they have different pickups; ceramic I believe). I'd like to know how it sounds in a 4 string with the stock pickup. If so, what preamp did you use? Anyone one out there do this? Comments? Reviews?

    Thanks!!!

    Well, I hear alot about the seymour duncan musicman replacement systems and the bartolini replacement pickups and how good they sound. I'm just curious to know if people have kept the stock pickup and just changed the preamp and what results they've had.

    I changed the PU and pre on my 20th Anniversary Stingray to a SD Basslines.
    They do sound good.

    My original MM pu and pre is in a drawer.
    Sometimes I wonder if BOTH pu's were installed what it would sound like ?
