    Hi, I was wondering if anyone had tried to replace the preamp on their sterling? It seems like the pickup leads are wired right onto it. Any ideas?

    Most people don't because that preamp is part of the character of that bass, but if you wanted to, wire cutters work quite nicely.

    Yeah, I was thinking about a OBP-3 with active/passive switching
