Hello everyone! I'm new here, but I've been playing bass for several years now and enjoy it immensely!
I learned to play on a P-bass that had the most unusual neck I've ever felt. It was obviously fairly wide (since it's a P-bass) but had an extremely thin C-shape. A professional bassist friend of mine said he'd never felt another P-bass that felt like it. Although it's absolutely wonderful to play, it's totally ruined me on any other bass lol. I wanted a 5 string and I searched forever till I found one that felt right. A Squier. After some research it looked like the Pro Tone was the best of the Squier basses so I've decided that's the one I want.
Now I want this to be my lifelong bass, so I wanna go all out on it and give it the best hardware/electronics
So here's what I'm thinking:
Hipshot TransTone Bridge
Hipshot Ultralight Tuners (what size post does the Pro Tone V have btw?)
SGD Neo 40 Soapbar in the neck
Nordstrand Big Split in the bridge
Some black dome knobs and string retainers (the bridge and tuners will also be black)
Black straplock system
And finally, rewire to have two volumes instead of volume/blend.
What are y'alls thoughts on that?
