I guess this is the right place for this post . . . I've got a fairly crappy sounding Jazz bass here, and I wondered what I could do to it to make it sound a little better. It's got passive electronics, and I didn't know if I could put a preamp in it or not. I've only been playing for about a year and a half, so I don't know too much about all the technical stuff. Forgive me. I also thought about new pickups, but I didn't know what kind I needed. I guess a new bridge would be nice, too, but that doesn't go in this forum. Anyway, would there be a way to make this thing come close to growling?
