Oh, I see and totally agree on the low g string output. Reminds me of my old NT5. I had to raise that side a bit higher than normal to compensate. My former SS2 had active pups and tremendous output on every string. I just couldn't do the fat neck anymore.I loved the Hellborg pre, but, I couldn't justify keeping it. It's an expensive pre and I rarely used it. I sold it for more than I paid for it.
No thread on what I didn't like about the P-Nut III, other than it was really quiet in the higher notes, like up on the G string. I tried strings, setup, pickup height, etc. Came to the conclusion that it was just a characteristic of that bass.
I still have the SSII and I love it. I'll never sell it
I'm using a Mesa M9.
Ah, there's no level for me my friend! I'm really not playing many shows now because of work. It pays too well for me to quit and persue music full time. I'll probably pick up some weekend gigs here and there. That's about it.
I'm glad you love your setup! I still have my Big Cab for sale. I'd like to just sell it and get a Club Cab, because that's where all the Hi Fi sound comes from. Couple that with a 4x10 or 2x12 and you're set.

The HB rig will stay with me until it breaks down. I would end up spending the same on any new quality rig anyway. Glad I got it really cheap. The Mesa M9 is a beast! I prefer it over the M6 after testing both with Mesa cabs at GC out here. I'm only gigging about once a week, so, it's not too much trouble to haul it around.
I know we all wish we could've kept all of our former Warwicks but. The only one I'm still interested in is a SS1 5 or LX-5 because of the wide spacing. the most important thing is that you have a nice bass to play whenever you can and you have the luxury of choosing gigs around real life.
That makes sense. My post should have said "Lo Cab alone is fantastic". That's the 3rd time I've used the LC alone and was again impressed. My situation requires more punch than dynamics and with pa support, the LC makes a great stand alone imho.
Can i ask why arent you getting on with it? String spacing?
