    Boingo FL4 H-p with cobalt flats.

    RE: OP

    You say you want the sound of a 2003 SR5
    but want it as a 4-string ? OK. Seems you
    don't want an SR4 of any type. You want a

    All over the place ? $800 to 1200 is a pretty

    I bought mine on clearance from GC,
    pre-dinked but a great discount. Then
    I found a cheap nail polish that was a

    I had the SD Basslines PU in a 93 SR4

    I have a strong suspicion that EBMM PUs

    The 1999 should not have "pick ups" plural,
