    This is my yamaha rbx765, I was wondering if she was worth upgrading (pups or whatever) or if I might as well save the money for a better bass.

    The B is not as tight as I would like, is there anyting I can do??

  2. I personally love upgrading basses that feel good to play. If there are some fundimental things about the playablity that you don't like, I would save up and buy a new bass. If you love playing it, I don't see anything wrong with doing what you have to do to get a sound you love.

    the B string: Different brand strings tune to pitch with different tensions. you may want to try some hex core strings like DR LoRiders.

    The above is just my opinion, but that goes without saying I am sure.
