    Check this new bass out. It plays way nice and has a great tone. The active pre amp is junk and I am looking tp upgrade the eq, or go passive.

    I cleaned off what I think was Vic Wooten signature off the body, there was a big thread on it.

    Lol. Yes and no on the electronics.. Maybe two weeks after I got it I put in a new jack, and just yesterday I was messing around and broke a wire in the preamp.. So any suggestions on a new preamp setup? I'm sure I could splice the wire back.. But I'm ready for some updates!

    I'll try to post a picture of it sometime tomorrow. Last week I put some DR Black Beauties on it.

    Everything is for sale for the right price *Evil grin*

    Lol. No worries I didn't limp away. Like I said I don't really wanna sell it. :)

    On a serious note:
    Should I go with new pups or a new preamp?
     
  14. A preamp will give you the most bang for your buck.

    I have this bass as well! I bought mine off of eBay in 2002. It has been sitting in the closet for 10 years, and I just got it out, defretted it, oiled up the nack and got La Bella tapewounds for it. What a GREAT freteless this thing is. I cam currently gutting the electronics, and wondered if anyone has some insight as to what the type/dimension of the bridge pickup is. I can find nice 5 string J to go in the neck, but that humbucker is REALLY dull sounding. Most likely going to go with a Sadowsky or Aguilar preamp in it. Thanks!
