    Hey, I am doing a few modifications to my standard jazz (fretless neck, hardware, etc.) and I was just wondering what would be the best pickup/preamp set up to bring out the great tone of this bass. I like active pickups, but I am willing to with whatever will sound best. I like a warm and bassy fretless tone like upright but sometimes I also like to crank out some great "mwah"-like jaco tone. Any tips? Thanks

    ps- would bartolini X44CBJD narrow soapbars fit the place of a single coil standard jazz p'up? thanks
