    Fred, how much more would be involved for the V-Bass-ready retrofit?

    those are Lightwave infrared pickups.

    check out www.lightwave-systems.com

    their web site can explain the inner workings MUCH better than i ever could.

    THANKS FIG!!!

    Sorry, I could have worded my previous post better. What is the control setup? Can lightwaves go passive? I know about the optical pickups, I was just wondering about that stuff.

    Awesome bass man, the top on that is exactly what I'd be looking for in a spalt maple top.

    any interest in a MIJ '75 RI Fender Jazz

    TheMightyQuinn:

    volume / treble / mid / bass / icetone piezo.

    no passive per se.

    bassjus:

    that's pretty close....i'm looking at a MIJ 62 jazz.

    Oh damn, the 62s are great basses, hope you find one. Good luck selling, although I don't think you'll need it.
