I'll be picking up my new hybrid (standard, not deluxe) from Upton at the end of April. Wondering if any of you who own the same instrument have any experience with a specific pick up that works well, or one that doesn't. I understand all the qualifiers - each bass is different; YMMV; amp; pre-amp; etc. I'm really am just looking for general experience from owners of this specific instrument. Playing is all pizz - traditional country, easy listening rock in bar gigs, and bluegrass. And pretty much always plugged in except for some bluegrass jams or parties. I have a Realist Lifeline on my Kay plugged into an AI Coda Series IV. I also own (but don't use much) an FDeck Model 2. I like the Lifeline on the Kay, and may get another one of those. I'm also intrigued by The Band, but not crazy about the idea having to use a pre-amp. And the high praise for the Underwood makes me wonder if it would be worth trying. Anyway, any thoughts appreciated.
