Just played the Classic Vibe Jazz Bass (60's version) at the local shop and am thinking it might be worth grabbing as a gigging bass, but wanted to get some input from fellow TB'ers. Yes, I've already read many of the comments on TB regarding the relative value of Squier basses, so I do not need to be sold on getting past my own gear snobbery. (I am normally a Fender MIA P-bass/J-bass guy who has zero interest in anything that is not Fender MIA, or MusicMan or Sadowsky or...) The bass feels really good, so it passes my own subjective test as far as that goes. But I am looking for input on some specific questions: - Upgrades - Has anyone had any issues with upgrading pickups or hardware? New pickups would almost certainly be a must. - Bridge - Yes, it's a high-mass bridge, but is it suitable for the long haul? - Basswood body... Don't have any experience with basswood, but I know it is used often in lower-priced instruments (and even occasionally in higher-end instruments with decorative tops.) - I noticed that a heavy coat of polyurethane was used on the neck... Would there be any issues with sanding the neck down? Thanks for any helpful input you can give.
