This is the 4 knob version. The following section I’ve copied and pasted from the Sadowsky website to explain this awesome onboard bass preamp.

    The Sadowsky 4 knob Onboard Bass Preamp is a completely prewired system offering the same controls and preamp as all Sadowsky Basses.

    The controls are: Volume-Pan-VTC-Treble/Bass. VTC stands for Vintage Tone Control (pull up the knob for total bypass).

    The preamp can be installed either with the included control plate or mounted through a rear control cavity in either a 4-in-line or diamond pattern.

    Your pickups attach via solderless connectors at the pan pot. The direction of the pan pot can be easily reversed by which pickup terminals are used.

    Installation requires a side jack and a battery compartment. We recommend shielding the control cavity and pickup cavities at the time of installation. We also recommend installation by a professional guitar technician or builder if routing and drilling for a battery compartment and/or side jack is required.

    This system is not compatible with EMG or any other active pickups requiring anything other than a 250K or 500K volume pot. For these applications, please custom order a parts only preamp kit and use your original volume pot.

    So if you are looking for that famous Sadowsky sound this brings you right to its doorstep.

    Basically there is NO soldering involved. Just a small screwdriver.

    New these cost $269.00.
    I’d be open to trading for an Aguilar OBP-3 Preamp on a Jazz Bass control plate.
