his point was: its bass. its barely heard. why are you going to waste money on that?
seriously, i dont see it as a waste of money. as a guitarrist, i dont feel like I need too many basses. I have 2 precision basses, 1 standard one and 1 that has a jazz pickup too. I'm not going around gigging, playing bass at shows.
What I want to do is take an already decent bass, and make it great.
the bass is a squier.
Which is an awesome bass. problems? the tone is very good, but I want something deeper and punchier. i heard that a quarter pounder even makes the bass LOUDER, which i dont know is fact, but oh well.
also, the bridge on it is rusting, and the height adjustment screws are stripping at the top. I will have to take measurements to be sure what size the spacing and the screws are, but I am almost sure that these fender specific bridges will fit. (5 screws on my bass, identical to a friends mexican jazz bass).
Because, if all you need is ONE bass, for recording and ocassional gigging, wouldnt you want to make it awesome?
right now im wondering this, when one is considering buying a replacement bass pickup, what specs do you have to look for? DC resistance, like a guitar?
is there anything else i can upgrade? tuners? nut?
