    I am thinking of upgrading the pickups in my Highway One Jazz Bass. Bartolinis have been suggested for a clean, warm, vintage tone. Any comments?? Also while searching this topic here I found lots about the j/u retro preamp. sounds really cool. Does this mount right into a passive jazz bass, or is there lots of cutting and routing involved? Any other suggestions for pickups or pre's? thanks

    Lots of options available, you'll find a ton by doing a search. A buddy of mine put Bart huncancellers + and OBP-1 in his MIA Jazz and it sounds fantastic. I put DiMarzio UltraJazz + the OBP-1 in my '71 Jazz and it also sounds killer (DiMarzio Model J are also great).
