Recently I ordered a used Stingray HH from guitar center. I bought it used with the intentions of putting in the ACG preamp and maybe some SGD pickups. After getting it, I realized the bass is practically brand new. I think it was hanging on a wall or something it has never been played the neck was so new it was still a little gritty. Some oil and playing it is smoothing up nicely. Now I'm a little to mod a bass I got for 850 which is brand new with no flaws. My question is this I am interested in the ACG preamp to get more of a wal sound. (I know. Its not a wal) Is there a way to put the EQ02 into it with the extra knob. Is there a replacement plate available for a stingray for five knobs. Of the SGD pickups would they offer me more tonally than stock pickups. Good midrange punch and tight bottom end and some clarity in the highs. Thanks.
