    Ive been toying with the idea of getting piezos and/or a lightwave system installed in my flea bass to add a bit of versatility to it...does anyone have a ball park figure of how much it should cost to get the lightwave and piezos put in?

    LIghtwave doesn't make retrofit units last I heard. They have to be built with the bass as it stands at present.

    As for the piezos, Lightwave makes their own, the Icetone," to go with their pickup, I guess because both are bridge mounted.

    Significant $$$$ for their stuff.

    True. They sell to luthiers only, and it does cost severe dolares.
    Leper, you may ask a luth if he can get hold of a set to retrofit (if you feel rich). There is a possibility you strike lucky - and a risk you'll be disappointed.
