Just thought I'd share. I've owned a 2000 USA Precision Bass for the last few years. While I like it, and it's a well-constructed bass, for whatever reason it's just never been my favorite. I've had it up for sale a couple of times, came close to selling once, but never parted with it. So, I decided to get a little old school on it. Before (Stock): After: Not a crazy mod project by any means, but in addition to the obvious pickguard change and adding the ashtrays, I installed a Nordstrand NP4 pickup and put on D'Addario Chrome Flats. What a world of difference. The Nordstrand pickup is so cool - vintage sounding, but fuller and cleaner. I'm subbing with a blues group this weekend - guess which bass is coming with me?
