    I had the SD Basslines PU in a 93 SR4
    along with the matching SD EQ-pre.
    The EQ-pre featured a stacked pair of
    knobs so that you had 3-band control
    even tho it was a front jack rather than ...

    Nobody worries about a few extra holes
    on the back of the headstock of a player
    grade bass. On a top dollar collectible it
    can be costly, but otherwise no big deal.

    I have a strong suspicion that EBMM PUs
    are engineered sympatico to EBMM active
    EQs such that seeking an EBMM PU to use
    with SBMM electronics may be a bad idea.

    The 1999 should not have "pick ups" plural,
    so there's another difference. Strings were
    already mentioned, but do you use cobalts ?
    That would be a noticeable boost.
