Hi, I just purchased this mojo gem and it arrived today. It has greasy 30 year old smoked filled, beer soaked Dimazio's that is great for funk. However, the electronics don't maximize the natural tone of this bass. http://xush.net/mywebpages/Xush Basses_files/funkafizer/funka.htm I am modifying the bass and putting in a J-Retro preamp for more sonic choices. I was also thinking of experimenting with the pickups. I have always liked Bartolini's in fretless basses (though I am open to suggestions) but esthetically, I like the look of the cream pick up covers. I have never seen pickup covers in this colour for Barts. Do they make them or any 3rd party companies make cream coloured covers that fit with Barts? Any good sites for these kinds of accessories would be welcome. Last question - If you were going to put new pickups in this bass...which ones and why? (We all have our taates when it comes to tone....just curious.) Thanks in advance for your consideration.
