    I know the pre-Gibson Tobias (and possibly very early Gibson era) basses have a different preamp system then the Gibson Tobias made in the mid to late 90's, especially the Classic and Basic. Is anyone familiar with how this actually effects the sound? I have a '98 Classic that I think sounds killer...can anyone tell me what, if any, difference there would be in one of the early ones?
