hi guys...i just recently got a new (to me....actually built in '95) curbow 6 stringer with the rockwood body (flat top) and, of course, a rockwood neck. it has the older bart preamp in it (9v), and i was looking at maybe getting a new one. i would like to get one with a little more aggressive sound. specifically, i was looking at emg and seymour duncan. i'm more than likely going to keep my pickups...they're bart soapbars, which are great. anyone have any suggestions? i haven't actually talked to greg yet, but i thought i'd get some opinions from you cool cats. thanks!
