    anyone here had his Pups and maybe even the preamp replaced in his Streamer LX5 or any other J pups equipped Warwick?

    what did you use and how do you like the new sound?

    TIA.

    Well I dont have a warwick but I do know that SD basslines sound INCREDIBLE in Dirk Lance's Warwick streamer bass, formerly of Incubus. I wish I could get that tone.

    yup, I ended up with EMG's in my Thumb 5 after trying a lot of different combos

    IMO, the pickups are more important. Most of the high end preamps are all perfectly good, it's more a question of what sound you're after.

    If you do a search you'll find plenty of my thoughts on the Warwick pickup replacement subject.
