    The only thing they didn't do right is pickup spacing. This one has 60's.

    It’s been like 20 yrs ago but if I remember correctly , that was one reason I let mine go.
    I have since grown to appreciate both 60’s and 70’s pickup placement .

    I love mine. Every time I look at it, I just get the urge to pick it up and play.

    Mine's a '97. I slapped a pearloid PG on.

    Show yours!
    I love mine too! It's very inspiring.
    I have read that 1994 was the best year, although I haven't had a chance to compare it with the others.

    Prior owner replaced all the screws with gold ones, which I thought I'd hate. But it's actually just the right amount of bling. Very '70s.

    You don't like to play around the bridge pickup?

    Strangely, no. Generally, I prefer my tone as bright as possible. I used to own a real '70s spacing Jbass and I tried playing it with the cover, but I didn't like that sound. On this one, it works for me.

    I own four basses and I tend to play each one in a different sweet spot. I'm not sure I can quantify why; it's just where they're comfortable for me. I do play with a pick, and I never really move my hand.

    I like them both. These are actually also my go to brands of roundwounds . The Slinky’s win but they seem to go dead at a faster rate.
