+1 though I've not had this combo in quite a number of years. Back in the day however, I loved this setup, and listening back to old recordings I'm always struck by how full and rich the combination sounded. Never to harsh and pingy, nor bottom heavy and muddy. Just fat, thick, "sit under the band and push" kind of tone with just enough top end to have some presence. I've been fighting the urge to go this direction on one of my basses lately, just because enough is enough at some point with all these gear changes!
