compared it today vs my original EBM and active Fender, sounded much improved.... rehearsal tonight through the guitarist's spare Marshall MB30 made that little combo sound better than ever... I think I'll keep them.... Excellent EA strings, pretty good on the D&G in the middle frets, but a little weak on the highs using the P pup. The Jazz pup is mediocre so far.... will adjust height....but I definitely have a gigging bass here now...
In progress, just set up, action lowered, new light gauge Neon Tangerine string set, new EMG PJx set in ivory to keep with the retro look.
They use 3 knobs, so the 4th is just sitting there for the photo. I'll find a stud or dead pot to hold it.
I was considering the BTS or BQC control systems but so far... undecided.
