Upgrade a Squier or get a new 5 string?
Hey everyone. I've set around £200 aside to acquire SOMETHING bass related, so I've been wondering... Is it worth upgrading my Squier Mike Dirnt P Bass with some Seymour Duncan Quarter Pounders, new hardware (including a Badass II bridge) and a new nut? I mean, would these upgrades make a difference that justify the cost? My other option is to get a 5 string; I've been looking at an ESP LTD B-15 and I really like it. Having played one, the setup seemed absolutely perfect, I like the fact it has 24 frets, and it looks ok, just the pickups seemed a bit noisy, which is quite an important issue to me.
So, advise me, TalkBass. Upgrade the Squier or get the 5 string?
