    I wonder if the Bartolini 3-band preamp w/ 3 knobs and a 9v battery would fit inside the control cavity of a J.

    I've never tried it, but since I've had several J's, and several basses with Bart 3-bands and know how big both are, I'd have to say "No". (At least, not without some routing...)

    Short answer... no.

    Not even a smaller preamp like the obp-3 will fit inside the small cavity of a regular jazz bass.

    Hmm...that's why the J-retro is so expensive because it fits.
