I've got an Aria IGB-68 and i'm pretty happy with it. But, i'm thinking of getting a new pickup put in .

The current pickup is a music man stingray style pickup and it's fairly close to the bridge. Whilst this provides a great sound I really want a thicker and warmer sound, at the moment it's just too light.

The bass has active electronics and you can alter the sound, but I think that an extra J-bass pickup placed close to the neck would really improve the tone.
I don't know much about pickups so if any body has any reasons why this is a good / bad idea then please tell me.

I'd buy a new bass but I simply can't afford one, have you seen the Fender Stu Hamm Urge II ? It looks great, with two j's and a p pickup and a dual design bridge. Wow, but it costs $1750 !!

Any help'd be great
Thanks
