    hey guys

    I have an esp jm500 (jeremy marshall signature edition 5 string bass)

    I bought a warwick corvette double buck 5 string and it tears it to shreds tone wise.

    I want to put a new pre amp in the jm500 so that it can compete on the same page as the warwick so I can use it at future gigs.

    It has to soap bar emg's in it

    I was wondering if anyone out there can suggest a solution to this issue.

    Im looking for a tone in the range of a musicman stingray or a fender p if that is possible

    I know im asking alot, hopefully some one will be able to help me out

    I don't think you're going to get anywhere close to a Stingray sound with that bass. Changing the pre and the pickups to MM style pickups would be your only choice, but the pickups aren;t in the right location anyways.

    I'd put an Aguilar 3 band in it, with some new pickups as well. I don't really like EMG's very much.

    If you want an SR sound...sell it and buy an SR!!!
