    I have a Fender P Bass Lyte Deluxe and I am not happy with the tone. I like the action and weight of it and it is a pleasure to play for a long gig. I talked with John at Bass Emporium and he suggested an Aguilar OBP-3 preamp to replace the standard Fender unit, saying the Fender unit was pretty weak. Has anyone made a similar switch and did it make a noticeable improvement in your sound?

    Did you keep the standard preamp?
  3. Yes, I only changed the pups, now I have more output!

    I really like the bass for studio work!
