Both! In my arsenal, 3-2pus, 1-1pu. I enjoy the tonal variation on my 2 pickup basses, 1-active/passive, 2-passive. I agree, adding the bridge pu to an EBO helped. I've done it. I can't help but think what a well placed pu (p/stingray position) would have done for that bass. Neck pu against the fret board was a bit too much forward resulting in its "thunder" we eb players like to call it. A quality pu makes a lot of difference too. On this subject:
I had a chance to play this bass! The SSS proved to me what a micro amount of movement of the pu position will make to your tone. Awesome! NCI

As much as I like the varation with my 2 pu basses, I still enjoy playing my P style bass. It allows me to just play, and I can still find great tones just rolling off the tone knob or moving my plucking/picking hand position up and down the strings.
