So, after MUCH waffling, I'm selling my El Toro because I've decided, as cool and unique as it is, it's a little bit redundant in my collection of ten basses. I'm typically a Jazz bass guy, and the Toro is like a really hot J-bass on steroids. I also own a mid 90s L2000 that I bought in high school with my graduation money - it was my first "real" bass so I won't be selling it. I also own 5 other Jazz or Jazz-style basses, all with pretty hot pickups/preamps, so it's pretty easy for me to find those sounds when I want them. I have two P/Js but those aren't quite the same as owning a good solid P. So I'm thinking I need an SB1 or an LB-100. I'm really jonesing for that swirly "bowling ball" finish that G&L uses ever-so-often. Despite how fragile it is, it sure looks cool. There's a gray swirl LB-100 I fond online at a shop. A little higher than I want to spend, but we'll see. And I have the opportunity to buy a swirl SB1, which is cheaper than the LB100 but more banged up. I'm definitely leaning toward the SB1 but wanted to get some opinions about the SB1 vs the LB100. I've heard the SB1 is way hotter, since it has the MFDs (which I like) - I'm leaning this way because I'm used to active basses. Although I was thinking of throwing an East P-Retro in either bass, either way - although $300 seems like a lot for an on-board preamp. Both basses I'm looking at are mid 90s, post Leo. I know it's probably crazy to sell a rare Leo-era El Toro in favor of a mid 90s G&L but sometimes we do crazy things Another random question - does anyone know if the SB1's pickup covers can be swapped out for a standard Fender-sized cream cover? I think the pickup covers are probably the same size even if they're different shapes (MFDs are kinda rounded...) Thanks!
