    I own a 2010 Spector Euro LX5 which I adore playing. I recently purchased a Sadowsky Metroline (German) J/J5. While I love the Sadowsky tone, I just cannot get comfortable with the feel (Yes, I have played it for three months). I have been looking into putting Nordstrand or Aquilar pups with a Sadowsky onboard preamp into the Spector. I have been unsuccessful in finding anyone who has actually put a Sadowsky preamp into a Spector. I'd love to get folks who have done it take on the outcome. Thanks!

    Hey just saw this post. I have put a Sadowsky preamp into my spector NS-2P. My bass is a little unique- it's 2 EMG P pickups (built that way from spector) and was passive when shipped. Since I needed the passive option but also wanted some preamp control AND a tone control, I installed a Sadowsly pre into it. Works fine and sounds like a spector. I never had a HAZ but the two band sadowsky works well for me.
