    I am debating on replacing my factory Douglas 6 string J-Bass pickups and preamp with some Bartolini 69J1 pickups and a HR-5.4 preamp.
    I am in the process of re-re-doing my bass body (didn't like the first attempt) and figured it would be a good time to upgrade while everything is apart.

    Does anybody have any experience with this type of setup? I like the sound of detailed clear highs, which the original hardware doesn't give me.
    bestbassgear.com has the pickups and preamp for $310.00
