    Grey hair with a love for music (the bass sound ) !

    So I have a general question I have a T-bird and a Schecter CV-4. I love the T-bird sound but I love the feel of the Schecter any Suggestions for a bass that meets this criteria?

    It is a lot easier to change the sound of the bass than it is the feel of one.

    Try doing the 3 step:

    1) Get another Schecter CV-4 like the one you have
    2) Install a good set of T-Bird clone pickups
    3) Have it wired so you can use the pickups as passive or run through the Schecter circuitry

    Rumor has it that these come very close. A few are here waiting to be installed into various basses to take them off of the "look and feel good, sound lame" status list.

    Don't take my word for it, a bunch of other T-Bird fanatics are onto this too:
    I hesitate to post this. $45 Thunderbird pickups.
    AND how to install them better than the original(page 6 of the above thread):
    I hesitate to post this. $45 Thunderbird pickups.

    Same seller here but since we got 'em via ebay and paypal b/c the price is about the same:
