Hi all! I currently own an Ernie Ball Music Man Stingray, early 90's model with passive 2 band eq pickups. Although I still love the sound thro my Trace Elliot combo, I've got money burning a hole in my pocket, of around £400-500. I don't want to sell the stingray, but am caught between (a) buying a new (or second hand) bass and (b) modifying my Stingray. If I was to buy a new bass I'd like a 5-string with the low B, and probably a Jazz bass. For this dilemma, I have several questions which I'm hoping the members here may have some advice on. 1) How easy would it be to add an active pickup, or maybe an extra pickup / switch to my existing Stingray? Any advice on hardware? (OK thats two questions in one!) 2) If I were to buy a Jazz bass, should I go for the Squier modern (new), or a second hand Fender (Mexican). Also could I change the pickups in a Squier to get a more decnt sounding / classic jazz tone? Sorry if some of these questions are a bit naive! And thanks for your time!
