I have an absolutely fantastic instrument built by Chris Stambaugh that I love. The playability is incredible. However, I have realized that the Pope preamp is absolutely not my sound. To my ears, it is very treble-heavy, and makes my PJ sound like a Music Man. I've been wanting to put a passive tone control in there for a while, a la Sadowsky. And while I'm at it, I was considering swapping the Pope for a Bartolini. Here's what I'm after: I want less of a Pope-Music Man sound, and get a more even tone, one that sounds more natural without that omnipresent super-high treble sound. I've tried all kinds of pickup pans with all kinds of settings on the preamp, but it ends up sounding too affected by it. I'm hoping some folks can chime in about what I can expect tonally if I switch the Pope for a Bartolini, or any other preamps you can suggest. Thanks!
