Were you able to type that w/ a straight face? If you think their Technique/approach didn't change over 30 years, more for Weir and Lesh, then i'm not sure what you've been listening to.
Here's a nice pic of Vince with the head of that bass in the foreground, a Barncard session in early 2001. Photo by Steve I think.

I've also had RT rewind an old Guild p/u to a 600 Ohm output using Cardas litz wire and installed in an old SF bass, but that was intended only for studio use, direct from bass, lo-z, to mic amp.
