    I have an Ibanez GT-Series 5 strings. The bass it self is great, and I love playing it, but the electronics are the problem.. It sounds great and all, but when I turn up the treble a bit it starts making this hissing noise. And if I turn the treble all the way up it really becomes bothering..

    So I was wondering what I should do!!
    Change the pickups, or sell the bass and buy an LTD bass.. B-255 I think, I think it's somewhat the same as the B-205 model, but this is the new 2004 model.. The reason I'm thinking about LDT is because, a friend of mine has some good contacts, so I can probably get a 40% discount on LTD's compared to the prize I have to pay where I live.

    I just wonder how much work, money and technical skills it would take to replace the pickups, and if it's better to just sell the bass I have and get a completely new one.

    Please, someone answer me!!
