I think I have my new bass specs out... Swamp ash body Maple neck Maple fret board It will be a four string made of warmoth parts. I already have the vintage sound covered with my Lakland JO and my P bass, with this one I want a more agressive sound with lots of bottoms a clear highs. I don't know much about pickups though...after reading Smash shout out, I think the Dimarzio ultra jazz would be perfect, but there is so many great pickups. I want a good slap sound, more agressive, more modern (then the vintage, passive fender sound). Also I will probably go with an active onboard pre... I was thinking about the aguilar OB3, I really want the mid EQ. Any sugestion about pick ups and pre? Nordstrand? Lindy? Aero? Lane Poor if i can find a set? EMG? Barts?
