I gonna take my bass to the a friend to get it all setup along with replacing the stock electronics as well. I thin kthe pickup is ok but the electronic definate need replacing. I got 2 set of spare preamp at home that could use for this bass. I got a set of very old bart 2 band preamp and a set of EMG BTC 2 band preamp. Not sure which one will go well to the peavey.
