    Some like the sound and the build quality of the Pre-EB. The recent EB quality is as good if not better than the Pre-EB, and I like the body cuts instead of the slab body. The 3 band EQ is much nicer than the 2 band so I have to vote for the Ernie Ball. YMMV.
  4. I 've never played a pre-EB stingray, but the you should check out the 2EQ models (EB), I think they are great, a better rock sound than the 3EQ models I think

    I wouldnt personally think that the 2band has anything over the 3band. The way i see it the 3 band is the same but better.

    Oh wwell.

    I have one of each. Both have their strong points.

    Though IME, the old pre-EB necks don't seem to hold up as well as the new ones.

    Pre-Ernie. Definitely, I playeda 1980 SR and I was more impressed with it than a 1999 model, so yeah.
