I've just picked up a '95 Warwick Thumb neck though. At present, it's loaded with EMG pickups, and a simple volume/volume/tone setup - no preamp. I'm thinking about changing out the pickups and/or adding a preamp, and I'd just like to hear some suggestions about what some of the Warwick owners on the board think is the perfect setup on this bass. One thing I will add, though, is that I'm not keen on going back to the MEC setup. I've owned a Streamer Stage I in the past, as well as having used MEC replacement pickups, and I don't like them.
