    You mean the SGD Wal repro?


    If so, it'd be tricky, considering he's not finished working on it yet.......

    I'll be having a preamp with low pass filters as well. A bit different from the ACG, and closer to the Wal or Alembic circuits (i.e., no high pass filters).

    When do you think that will be available? I really would love to throw one in my G&L L2000! :bassist:

    Schweet! And, are the pickups completed? Are they the music man style pickup? Do you think they would work in a G&L L2000?

    Just to point out that the ACG pre-amp has lowpass filters as well just like the Alembic and Wal but also adds a high pass filter.
     
  11. I really like the high-pass filter on my ACG. I can set the amount and frequency of my high end.... very versatile.

    :cool:
     
  14. Ive recently ordered some SGD pickups to be put in a bass with the ACG preamp. So far i have been in love with the preamp and I've got some pretty high expectations for the combination of the two.

    Im planning to get a set of the Wal repro pickups at some point in the future (once they are in production) to test them with the preamp aswell, the proyect looks interesting and im sure it will sound great.

    I'm finishing up your pickups right now, so they should be on their way soon. :)

    Please be sure to post some sound clips with the ACG pre.

    good luck with the development :hyper:!
