    I am planning to mod my KH 5.. I really like the bass and so I plan to keep it around a while.. I have been wanting to do this for a while to a bass.. I just was waiting for the right one ..

    I am actually going to mod both of these basses.

    The one on the left I am gong to put a BassMods Pre in it and maybe do the pups down the line I will try to find something here..

    The KH though I want to put in an Audere PZ and I am debating between the 3 band, the 3 band w mfs and the 4 band but leaning more toward the 4 band.
    For pups I am looking at the 76DL5C or the DL52CBJD3 for the MM pup and the J pup I am thinking of the 59J1 or the 59CBJD1 not quite sure about any of it though... I was also thinking of dong the bridge and tuners but I am not sure where I would go with that. I like that KSM bridge .. but it only goes to 18mm spacing so I may leave the bridge as it is for now and see if KSM comes up with something wider or just bite the bullet.

    Based on what I stated .. what do some of you think about the J pups as far as which ones I should consider. I like a sound that s full and round on the bottom but also defined in the mids.. not too trebly.. That is one reason why I am going with the PZ Audere.. I can kind of tweak how the pups work from my understanding of it.. I would also like to put in a switch for the MM pup that will at least go from single to dual coil.. What would be the added benefit of using the quad coil MM pup? I am also considering the preamp and how it will work with the pups.

    Any insight would be appreciated..
