    I wanna cop a Squier Deluxe Jazz active V. this is the all black version. I was ready to start looking at pickguards, until I read all the guys saying don't put a pickguard on it.. Leave it alone With the four control knobs and the switch, do they make a Control plate that I can place underneath the knobs. I like the black finish but I would like to add a lil' bit of flare with the control plate in probably gold, but I could go chrome too. This bass has a pretty good sound, what kind of preamp do Y'all :rollno:recommend?

    good 'ol USA/Tampa fla.
    for what is worth I think preamp it has in it currently is fine,I'm sure that you could put in ( what is percieved ) better preamps, Audere, Aguilar, J-retro etc. but how much well it will sound is debateable IMO. :meh:
