    Hey all,

    I want to start upgrading parts on my bass. I have a harley benton jazz bass. Not the most top end model out there but love the way it feels and plays so want to upgrade parts as and when i can.

    Would like peoples input on whats best to do first.

    Im torn between new pick ups or this preamp/control plate - Prewired "DubPlate" Jazz Bass Control plate | Jack's Instrument Services.

    Would i gain any benefit from my current stock pick ups with this plate or wouldnt it do anything until i have better pick ups?

    Thanks in advance

    I think the genl progression is
    1. Set up
    2. Strings
    3. Pick ups
    4. Pots

    No idea, but you should hit the report button and ask to be moved to the Pickups and Electronics sub-forum.

    Your thread will get more visibility there.
