I have a Fender Precision Lyte Bass MIJ equipped with stock, active P-type and soapbar style P/U's (Not a J as you might first suspect). Mahogany body and great neck. The stock preamp has 3-band eq with volume and blend. While the bass sounds smooth it dosen't seem to cut through a blues or rock mix as much as I would like it to. I'm looking for something with more balls soundwise which would blend better with the type of music my band is playing (Blues, Classic Rock and Hard Rock). Does it make more sense to first look at a new preamp or new P/U's to get the sound I want? What brand name and type would work best? Keep in mind that the end of road may have me changing out both preamp and P/U's! What is the most logical path to follow? Any recommendations. The neck on this bass is too sweet for me to let it go and buy something different.
