So, after a quiet 2014 (bass purchasing wise), In 2015 I am planning on either building a Warmoth short scale, or purchasing and modding some other short scale (currently between Jaguar SS and Warwick Corvette SS). The aim is to make the bass as versatile as possible, with both passive and active options. If I go the mod route, then I can route for the pickups at a later date, but if I purchase the body and neck from Warmoth, I need to decide what routing I want first. So, I am contemplating between P/MM, MM/MM, or dual soapbar. I was thinking along the lines of Nordstrand np4a Precision pickup with a Nordstrand m4.4 Musicman pickup and an Audere Preamp. But these choices are based completely on online reviews and videos/sound samples, as there is no one I know of that has these anywhere near me. I am not setting a budget limit, however, the cheaper the prices, the quicker the project will be finished! So, in your endless knowledge and experiences, what other pickups (and preamps) should I be considering? Thank you kindly.
