    ok - the pickups in my dearmond suck BIG TIME. they don't track the B at all...it's pretty lame, and the output is super low so i can't just switch basses, i have to putz with controls for a while to get it the same output as my warwick.

    so here's my idea


    get new pickups for my warwick, and drop the MEC golds into the dearmond.


    would it work?
    what pickups would be good in my warwick? i'd like something a little warmer and deeper sounding maybe.

    I have taken a flyer and ordered Alembic Activators for my Thumb wait 4 weeks and I will tell you what they sound like.

    PMs are good, but there are times when I deeply dislike them. :mad:
