    I have a 2010 MIM Fender P Bass Deluxe, 60th. My treble control is dead, had the pot changed with OEM, result no change. Bass is stock. Can I drop a Bassmods 34AP with mini preamp and use existing stock pups?
    The pups may be low impedance. Thanks.

    The pickups are Fender dual coil noisless. They are not likely to be low impedance.

    Thank you, LovethatBass, so existing stock pups should work okay with preamp?

    I dropped in the BassMods preamp and it is outstanding, had to crank the gain adjustment to about 75% to 80% for equal passive/ active switch.
    Thanks to all who helped.
