I have just managed to bag myself the Cabbie 6 years after I last sighted one. Yay for me etc. Having now read a few forum posts and given the bass a once-over, I do see a few glaring cost-cutting measures which I'd like to rectify. I hope someone out there could kindly steer me in the right direction as I've never pimped my axes before, beyond adding a thumbrest or changing a scratchplate. The trapeze piece looks like I made it. That is not a compliment. I see identical ones on eBay from China at £7. Also, I found that a beefy Ernie Ball 110 Power Slinky E string is too fat to fit it. How interchangeable are these? Must there be a relationship with the string spacing at the nut? Some people have complained that the nut is super cheap. It is, but doen't appear to be causing any problems. Yet. I suspect, like another Stylist owner noticed, that the bridge has been fitted upside down. The groove for the G string seems like it was meant for the E and vice versa. Will a novice tinkerer like me be able to rectify any intonation problems if I swap them back over? The supplied pick ups are no-name 6 pole guitar humbuckers. Can anyone suggest an appropriate replacement, preferably with a chrome finish? I know this is a lot to ask but I reckon a few bassists out there may have stored a fantasy set-up for this beauty in the back of their minds in case they ever did find one. Thanks in advance.
