I am just about to order a Warmoth Gecko 5 (Walnut body/wenge neck) and I was wondering if people here could help me out (I'm a new poster... hope this isnt too annoying to answer). I need to try and decide upon which pickup/preamp combo I should purchase. I am going to get Bartolini pickups, but I'm not sure what model. Does two of Bartolinis soapbar pickups give more control of tone than their jazz pickups? and What can anyone tell me about a good preamp for Bartolinis? I talked to a guy at Bass Emporium (www.bassemporium.com ), and he recommended getting a Bartolini preamp instead of an Aguilar OP-3 because it would compliment the Bartolini pickups better. So, is this true? And if so, what is a good Bartolini preamp to look at? Thanks for your time.
