    Hi there,

    I've been GASing for a warwick for almost 2 years now. But being a student, an already having to basses, I figured it would be unnecessary to buy a third bass. My teacher then told me about a luthier nearby and after many e-mails with MEC (very good customer service, they didn't tell me to use their Preamp, but helped me find a way to keep my EMG pre) I was certain about the pickups I was going to use.
    After reading all the positive reviews on the SS of Warwick I decided to swap my EMG HZs on my Esp/Ltd F-255 for two MEC MM style humbuckers with serial, parallel and singlecoil switch for each of 'em while keeping the active Emg 3 band eq.

    The result is simply amazing. I can get almost ANY tone I want, including those growly bass and mids Warwicks are so famous for!

    Just wanted to share with you all.

    I like MEC's as well. I don't think they work great on just any bass, but if you match the bass and the pickups, the results are stunning :)

    beautiful bass BTW
  3. Congrats! Where did you get the MECs and how much did you pay, if you don't mind telling.

    MR M I got the pickups from the Warwick web shop. Since I speak German I had no issues since both brands are German as well. I paid 300 € for the two of them, quite a lot, but it was my birthday present, so who cares ? ;)
    As for you, I don't have a clue if they ship to turkey...

    To Relic
    Thanks a lot!
