First post! So I'm torn between upgrading the stock Bart pups and preamp on my SR500 that will run me about $350. I've heard both that the resulting sound rivals many $2,000+ basses and that there's no appreciable difference in tone. OR Should I go all out and get a used 60's Reissue J-Bass for $475? I've played this bass in-store and I absolutely LOVE the tone. I gig regularly, but I'm a big guy so weight doesn't really matter to me. Also, my Franken-hands have no preference on neck size. I primarily want the J Bass for the slap tone (which my stock Ibby just can't match), but would the improved pups do the same thing? THANKS ALL!
