    I am the lucky owner of one of these basses and I love it. I used to have a jaguar bass, and thought that the Jaguar was the true jack-of-all-trades of the bass world.

    Well, I got this thunderbird used off of a friend of mine and haven't looked back. Not to discount the jaguar at all but I just like everything about this bass better. Achievable tones, neck, action, it suits my style of playing perfectly. Threw some ernie ball hybrid slinkies on and this baby sings. Any recommendations about future aftermarket parts that would sound nice? Or just any thoughts on this bass in general, I don't know anyone else who owns one.

    Maybe a new bone nut, but hey - if it ain't broke, don't fix it ;)

    Here's some parts you can put on: Hipshot ultralite tuners (to balance the headstock), new bridge? Hipshot supertone, though 3 point is actually functionable, just in case you wanna change it, thunderbuckers pick up (go to thunderbird club for more questions).
