    I've decided to spice up my Mexican J bass and I need a bit of input on a preamp! I've got my heart set on Bartolini p'ups but I'm unsure on the preamp.

    The John East is appealing because of the easy install, but a Bart preamp for example would be nearly half the price! What're the main differences between the two? And will I need to route the bass for the Bart pre?

    Cheers!

    Also, can anyone tell me if these will fit easily into the Mexican pickup cavities?
     
  3. Bartolinis and Aguilar preamps are a just about an unbeatable combination if you want to go active.
