Nice, almost spot on with the way Claypool is playing it. Nice bass too, I like the pikguard, how it extends to the top horn.

Yes daddy. /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smokin.gif

I'm using one of these in my current build but not sure as of which one yet. Filter based designed by John East and marketed
by Alan. (same guy that made my neck)

anything simpler? that's a whole lot of adjustments. i'd like vol, blend, bass , mid and treble. and all into my existing 4 holes. read up on a guy moding same guitar as mine at harmony central used fat stack nordys with aguilar pre and claims that it's the best sound on the planet. have you heard or read on those pre's?

Probably the best bang for your buck. If you liked the sound of my black J then this is a good choice.

Some people like the Aguilar some don't. Ihave heard they have their own unique tone. To me that sounds like it's changing the sound of the bass and I don;t want that.

big singles it is. i'm going to stick to the stock pre for now. not 100%sure what i want out of a pre yet. most likely going to run an 18volt system when i do switch. there is a hum issue with the singles but i'm going to try to find some copper foil (adhesive) to line the entire cavity and ground the crap out of it.
