    i got it for 300 canadian,i traded in my squier mb4 for it...was this a good move?
    is this a preciscion or jazz bass? or pj?
    and what kinda strings would be good for this...right now i have d adderio soft gauge,i was thinking ernie ball slinkys..so can someone who knows something about bass's without testing them out break down this bass for me? i didnt get this bass for the axe,i got it because it was only 50 more than the b50,and i thought it was a step up

    well, since anything is better than a squier, it was a good move. those are esp soapbar pickups. it is not a p pickup or a j pickup. as far as strings that are good and inexpensive id go for either ernie ball slinkys (i used the regular slinkys) or the d'addario xls. it seems to me that d'addarios are easier on the fingers and sound better longer. i have never actually played that bass, but it is definitely a step up from a squier.
