I know that replacing an Aguilar pre-amp with a Glockenklang has been discussed but I can't find that thread. If I remember correctly, Sheldon said the control holes are too big for the Glockenklang.

But what about putting a Glockenklang into a passive 2006 Afterburner 1?

Can I buy a complete harness with controls and selector?

I am not sure what Sheldon will suggest on this occasion but as an alternative option you could always fit a John East preamp which has been tried and tested on passive ABZ's so I don't see a problem in fitting these to an AB1, contact the John East factory on the link below:

I have thought of that. I have an East pre-amp in a Jazz Bass and a Stingray. I even have an old U-Retro in a box that I'm not using. They are very good pre-amps but I want to keep my Dingwall looking and working like a Dingwall. The main thing I would miss in a two-pickup East pre-amp is the full passive functionality of the Dingwall electronics package.

Have you considered an East P-Retro? You could leave the p/up selector switch as it is and feed the output into the P-Retro which will give you passive with vol/tone, and then the very flexible P-Retro active options.

I've seen this set up on an ACG bass and it's a really good combo, masses of flexibility.

The P-Retro is a good idea. I was aware of it but I didn't know the details of how it worked until now. I'm not familiar with John East's newer products. The P-Retro would give me everything I want without drilling more holes in my bass. I will consider it but still… (call me superficial) I really like the aesthetics and the feel of the Dingwall control knobs.

The Glock pots will still be too small for the holes left by the rotary switch and tone pot. I don't have a P-retro handy to measure the pot size but they would need to be 8-9.5 mm. 5/16" to 3/8".
