So I have been waiting to hear from G&L regarding my bum pre-amp and have been hearing about sloooooow turnaround on warranty repairs. As such I have had a thought: Instead of losing my bass for months I could just put in an aguilar pre. I seem to remember someone here doing it and saying it was awesome. I can appreciate that this would surely void any warranty relating to the electronics but would I still be covered on everything else? I will E-mail G&L but figured I would get a quicker answer here.
