  1. What is the likelyhood of getting a replacement board, with pots, for one of these basses ?

    I wasn't able to find one when I had mine, and a "tech" said it couldn't be fixed, but I use the quotes because after getting the bass back and talking to him I realized that he was either a) an idiot or b) just didn't care. How did I figure this out? When turned off one knob is a tone and the other doesn't work, he told me it was working but that the effect was subtle. He was outsourced through a store and I had to pay him to get the bass back, so I got scammed and as a result will never go back to Sam Bass Music (he was their tech and they backed him up). Have you looked into getting a 3rd party preamp?

  3. Thanks for the heads up. The Aguilar OBP 2TK looks good.
