    Ok, so I'm going to get an Ibanez BTB405QM hopefully. I've only ever played one unplugged, but I've heard the preamp in them is really bad. Well, I assume there's a preamp because it's got active EQ.

    Anyway, I was thinking of changing the pups to some sort of Nordstrands, Fat Stacks maybe, but I'm wondering will they fit? Or maybe I should be looking into Bartolini? I've got my choices between the 2, so as long as I know they'll fit, I can get my favorite ones when I have the time.

    Now, the problem is that I don't know what preamp to get. I have no idea about anything preamp related, so some advice would be helpful. If I were to get some Nordy's or Bart's, what kinds of preamps should I be looking at? Thanks in advance.
