    Got an SX Jazz coming. I know I will be doing modifications to it. Would I be better served replacing the pickups or buying a preamp(I can only do one at the time)? Thanks, Ken

    Probably be better replacing the pickups...The preamp would add some tonal flexibility (and they all have there own tonal color)...but you would be good to get to the sound that you are amplifying (preamp-lifying) to be good first..
