Ok, the crappy Bartolini pickups and preamp in my Gibson Les Paul bass makes noise like a jet taking off- apparently an issue common to the model- and I can't fix it by replacement because the tech says it just repeats the problem. SO- do I rout in new EMG 35 pickups and ruin the value of the bass or sell it to someone who won't mind the noise it makes; keeping it original and get rid of it? Any thoughts? It won't be worth what I paid no matter what. MAN!! They can put a man on the MOON! Y'know!?
