Help! What is my bass?
Got a bit of a dilemma. My band are now getting to the "touring round the country" point and I desperately need a backup for my bass.
The only problem? I don't know what it is and so can't either find a replacement or one that is even anywhere near like it.
It's an Encore (no big budget here, folks) and it LOOKS like a standard Precision copy, but there's no scratch-plate and in addition to the standard "Precision pickup" (the one that looks like a Tetris block), there's another single-coil pickup approx 3cm away from the bridge. I use this pickup exclusively to get a really nice, sharp, treble-y sound.
All Precision-style basses I've found do not have this secondary pickup. In fact no Bass I've found at all has a single-coil pickup this close to the bridge. Can anyone tell me what model of Encore bass I have, or have any suggestions for a good back-up bass I can look into?
