  1. its fantastic the electrics are way better than the rubbish in my 3 bass collections and the 35 inch scale means the B string is useable BUT my first bass was a bass collection in about 1990 having owned in the past 5 bass collections and currently owning 3 identical 5 string jazz basses i do like the necks the balance and the physical feel BUT i need cash to upgrade the pickups and pre amps
  2. this is the same spec as the the neck through with the EMG pickups and pre amp i have been told its called the spector legend 5 custom bolt neck

    Bass Collection Nanyo SB 335 - New photos

    i think i used to own this about 7 or 8 years ago
  5. reduced to £380 reduced again to £320 SPECTOR LEGEND 5 CLASSIC plus MADE IN KOREA (the plus has the emg pickups and preamp and gold fittings) this is an early model possibly a limited edition which features EMG HZ pickups and the EMG B30 preamp The current legend 5 classic comes with spector pickups and a 2 band spector preamp This is a step up from that with the emg pickups and preamp. you can see the difference as it has the stacked bass and treble controls. you can find this model if you google it. I got it off here from naxos10. the only real mark on it is shown in the pictures i have added a gig bag and a new set of elites and am asking pretty well what it cost me. I have a love affair with 3 x 5 string bass collections which all need new pickups and preamps

    Oh and the other reason i want to go passive is that the preamp in this guitar i really dislike the sound but what are the best pickups

    pickup and pre amp replacement

    thanks guys for all your contributions. I have had two passive 4 string bass collections and four active 5 string bass collections. I currently have 3 active 5 string bass collections the jazz bass style with the brass nut they all have different preamps but as i acquired them secondhand I do not know if any or all are original. I gig one of them most of the time I am not sure why they are all a bit noisy when i try to use any of the pickups individually. not massive noise you would not notice it on a gig but you would in a studio. for absolutely silent use I use a spector with emgs and the emg B340 3 band preamp. THe build quality on the bass collections i think is really good and I would like to upgrade the electrics and or pickups if possible

    pickup and pre amp replacement

    this is where i need the advice are all jazz bass pickups the same size I was hoping to find a luthier with the relevant experience the current preamp is 4 knobs which are fixed rigid to a printed circuit board so i was looking to replace it with another 4 knob preamp its a 2 band with volume and pan
  14. I use a 5 string active bass collection for most of the gigging I do. I am very pleased with the bass generally BUT I would like to upgrade the pickups and the pre amp as the pickups are a bit noisy when used individually ok when both on. I live in staffordshire and need a good luthier who does this work and can advise me OR HOPEFULLY ADVICE ON HERE I spoke to two local luthiers who would change the pickups if i got the new ones but both said it was up to me to find the pre amp. so where do i go to find the gear and the advice
