    I am considering going with a U Retro preamp and Lindy Fralin PU's in my Warwick Corvette standard passive bass. (99" Wenge neck with bubiga body)
    I cant say I am disapointed with the sound of this passive bass presently but I do feel that more punch and loudness is in order. I want the warm sound of the tone woods to come thru without discoloration.

    Personally, I love the neck and the playability of this bass but I think the electronics can be improved massively.

    What do you guys/gals think? Am I barking up the wrong tree? Should I leave it alone? This is the best passive bass I ever owned but I really feel that an electronics upgrade can make it be even better.

    Anyone have LF PU's with a U Retro in a Warwick Corvette standard? If not, what do you recommend? I used the search feature and came up with basically nothing.
