    I am considering upgrading my Ibanez SR-885, rather than spending upwards of 1k to find a new bass. I love the playability of this bass and use the sweepable midrange on it. I usually keep the tone control locked in the middle and am not too fond of either extreme (fretboard pickup is warmer sounding, but bad for the mix, neck pickup too pinched). This isnt a bad bass, but it isnt spectacular either. I often feel like a lot of my sound is coming from my pre's and amp.

    Anyone know what pickups & electronics are available for this bass, and what their characteristics usually are?
