    Ok I bought one used for $950. My older stingray is a 89 with a nordstrand pickup. Im thinking of throwing in the nordstrand in the 30th. The 30th has so much high I had to roll it flat .
    Just wondering if the pre ernie ball pick ups were made different. The nordstrand is a old replica.

    Thanks .........

    There's several variations of the preEB pickup, there is no "one".
    To me the 3-band preamp is what has so much highs that you describe. All the 3eq Rays I had I ran the treble and mids flat, including the 30th I had.

    You can always try the pickup, and it's easily removed if you don't like it.
