    Hello,
    If you have to choose between a BEC III 3 Way Electronics for a Warwick Streamer LX 6 , or a Basslines 3 Band System wich would you choose and Why?

    Warwick no longer uses Basslines pickups either , because MEC has already released the Soapbars.

    Any Input on the BECIII ? Thanks.

    i've got the BEC3 in my thumb, and it's pretty decent. my only gripe is that it's kinda noisy, and the mid control seems to be put too high. a sweepable midrange and a little cleaner sound would make it badass. don't know how it compares to a basslines system though - my thought is that the BEC sits better than most factory electroncs (fender, ibanez, yamaha, etc) but not as good as most aftermarket systems.
