Prophetable or Pointless???

    1. I was looking on one of the forums here and saw something about upgrading to 18V electronics and I was wondering if my Ibanez EDC 605 would be able to handle it or if I would fry the board.

    2. I'm now starting realize how cold of a sound that luthite body crap makes, but I love the feel of the bass and can't afford another at the moment. Would it be prophetable to change to EMG's or Bartolini's to try and get some better tone out of it, or is it pretty much hopeless?

    I'm just now starting to get into and understand how the electronics and accoustics of a bass works so I'm kind of in the dark on these issues. Any help (or none if it's impossible) would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
