So - A friend gave me a bass - fo FREE! Here's my problem - it's kind of a junky 10 year old Squier P-Bass. So - why not have it as a backup? I need new knobs, some new hardware (one saddle screw), new strings to make it "whole" again. What should I do (if anything) after I make it good again? I've been messing with the truss rod to straighten the neck, and after a lot of work and 2 complete rotations it's ALMOST there (meaning straight). Should I throw a decent pickup in it and just have something passable? Should I upgrade the electronics? I dunno... I currently have a MIM Reggie Hamilton Jazz that is my main bass, but have been interested in a Precision for awhile (but looking at MIAs really). One more thing - since a friend gave it to me, I'm not really planning on junking or selling it - just need a plan to make it somewhat useful - I'm open to ideas - it cost me nothing, so doing a few upgrades myself is an option. Thanks in advance!
