    Hello everyone ,
    I have a project going on and would like to change out the pickups and replace the wiring in my Warwick little red Corvette and I need some Ideas on what to use.
    I do not care for the Mec's and I want to keep her passive but a little hotter pups. What do you guys recomend?
    I know bassline 1/4pounders are hot,anyone has these in there ash corvette care to comment?
    And I was thinking about Barts , but which set?
    and EMG's and again which set?
    I'am wanting low to midrange punch but not real bright sounding pups.
    The Corvette has an Ash body. And should I when rewiring go to the standard Vol- vol- Tone or rewire her back to the VOL- Blend -Tone?
    Throw me some Ideas...

    Thanks Eno

    If you want passive for emg, I think they only make one version of the J pups. Id look at Dimarzio J pups myself. Hotter then regular fender J's and fuller sound.

    DiMarzios.. They'd suit a Warwicks naturally woody tone really well, I imagine. Like a standard J pickup, but hotter and with more growl.

    I kept the stock MEC pups in both my Warwicks (so far...), but from what I can see in the Warwick forum the most popular replacement seems to be Bartolinis.
    Saying that, I tried a PS P-Nut with SD QPs and it was quite good. Warwicks have good midrange which probably works well with the QPs.
