    hey,

    I managed to get a stingray for a hella good deal, so i compromised on the 2 band 3 band thing...i love the sound of the 2 band in its own way, but i need a 3 band for the music i play to help me cut...ANYWAY.

    I have 3 pots on the front and the jack on the front, i dont want to route out the side to move the jack so i need a 3 band that have a stacked bass and treble or as long as something is stacked so i can fit the 3 bands plus volume in my bass without too much rerouting.

    any help would be nice...thanks

    P.S
    I would like the preamp to be very very growly.

    and is it true that seymour duncan stingray replacement stuff sounds like garbage when used in halfs...ie SD pre MM PU or vice versa?...thanks

    You can wire an Aguilar OBP-3 to have stacked treble/bass. I've never played one, so I can't comment on the sound, but a lot of people seem to swear by them.

    OBP-3 would work for what you're looking for.
