    Hello!

    I want to buy some new pickups for my Warwick. I have been doing some research and have came down to bartolinis with an aguilar pre-amp; but i am not sure if this a good idea.
    I'm looking to get the 59J1-L for the neck and the MM5C for the bridge with an aguilar pre-amp. Will these fit into the pickup slots? and are there any other suggestions?

    Thanks in advance!

    I've got Nordstrands in my Jazzman 4 - I wouldn't say its a night and day difference, but they certainly added a dimensional flavor that I didn't have with the stock pickups. I chose to keep the MEC preamp for the time being, but I think the Nordstrand preamps are great, too.

    Do you happen to know the quality/sound difference between the barts and the nordstrands?

    Sorry, no. I haven't used Barts since the 80's!
