I got lucky and got a dirt cheap Asian '51 Precision knock-off at a really low price. The bass is actually not bad, the neck and body are worth hanging on to, but the pickup is pretty crappy.
So I am debating whether I should mod it into a Cabronita and route in a Filtertron pickup (or a TV Jones if I'm really gonna add money to it), or just upgrade the pickup with a Quarter pounder or something to that effect. This is unknown territory for me, however, as I have no experience with any of these pickups. The aim is to make a "rock'n'roll" and "old school" type Precision bass for those "retro" gigs that I play once every 15th year
So what should I pick?! Filtertron/TV Jones or keep the single-coil Telecaster vibe?
And if I go the last route, should I go for the Seymour Duncan Basslines Hot or Quarterpounder, or the Antiquity one?
Any thoughts and recommendations highly appreciated
This is what the bass looks like now:
