well thought, since i cancelled to install any kahler at my Cort RB5, due lack of space at the bottom of the bass body shape i decided to upgrade the preamp and the bridge instead with piezo

right now, the bass had 2xsoapbar bartolini usa, the soapbar was ex tobias pre gibson, nice eh?
Spoiler:
 
adding an ebony ramp with radius last year..

and now, adding some spice, i'll replace the stock preamp (korean made bartolini preamp) with barto NTMB-918 USA cheers
Spoiler:
 

and i ordered a piezo bridge from the bay, shipped, ETA next month..
Spoiler:
 

the problem is the stock bridge had 19mm spacing, while the piezo bridge had 17mm spacing, but both of those bridge looks similiar at the string saddles, so the plan is i will switch the saddles.. *pardon me for my poor photoshop skill
Spoiler:
 

and here's the buffer for both piezo and mag, ordered it with 3-way switch from BBG, ETA next month

My favorite forum wizardry. I learned it a few years ago while trying to figure out how to post ascii art.

Code:
        _____  __
ccccc\      / /    /ccccc
 ccccc\    / /___ /ccccc
  ccccc\  / /    /ccccc
        \/ /    /
          /    /
