Uh, ok, i was real psyced when i heard about the new pre amps they were putting in thier basses. obp1 was it? i don't remember. But now i go to see the price list, and it says, and i quote "Passive EMG-HZ USA EMG pickups with Spector Active Tone Circuit (new 2003 upgrade), " Is this a good thing?So they went from emg circut, the other one (aguliar? can't remember the name, let alone spell it.) and now to this. Is this used in the usa models or something? I just found it weird, one year, use one preamp, then the next, just drop it. Am i the only one confused? has anyone else seen this?
