    I was just thinking [email protected]
    and his thread comparing Stingray Specials to the older versions. He was definitely right about the Specials not having the aggressive treble of the original preamp. Back to back, I could get far more brightness out of the older preamp. If you want Louis Johnson or an aggressive Metal tone, get the original. I would if you wanted a more Bernard Edwards sound, the Special is the superior bass. I actually think the Special can get a heck of a Jazz Bass bridge pickup tone with the treble and bass at 50% and the mids at 100%.
