    I tried posting this in pickups and haven't gotten a response so I'll try here.

    It seems like everyone is in consesus that the MEC's suck. I want to replace the electronics (since I can't afford a new bass, haven't had a problem with neck dive, and like the overall feel of the neck)

    Does anyone have any recommendations? It seems like I should get some responses since everyone hates the MEC's someone must have tried something else.

    Prices and Model numbers will help me as well....

    Thanks to you all!!!

    From what Ive heard through the grapevine, EMG's and Warwicks go well together (and if you use the search function in the Pickups froum, i'm sure you could find a few topics concering this matter)

    I've played a couple with Basslines that sounded awesome too. And one Streamer Stage II with Barts that sounded very good.

    I m thinking about gettin a thumb....since I ve played other warwicks but not the thumb...how could you describe the sound of the thumb? I m looking for an agressive powerful sounding slapper axe...the thumb will work at it?

    thanx
