    Hey TBers,

    So I just made the jump to a 6 string and picked up an MTD KZ6.

    I'm going to go right ahead and upgrade the pickups and preamp.

    What do you recommend? What has worked for you?
    Why do you like your set up?
    If you know, can you give me model numbers (like there are 10 different Bart pickups etc, to help narrow it down)

    Thanks in advance for the advice.

    Hey bud,
    I recently purchased an MTD Z6 with upgraded Nordstrand big splits and aguilar preamp. I could let you know how it sounds when I get it sometime next week. I have also seen a lot of Bartolini pickups and preamps installed. I believe the pickups are the P2 size.
    good news is , you have a few choices due to the size of the original pick ups
    Happy new year!

    I put a pair of Nordy Big Splits in my KZ5. Sounds good to me!

    I just added another 9volts battery to mine and that did it for me, more headroom and attack overall.
