Hey I was just wondering if what happened to me has happened to anyone else. I just bought a brand new Fender Precision bass 4 String from MusiciansFriend.com. I got it and it didn't work when I plugged it into my amp. I tried all different cables and amps. Sure enough, I had a bad pickup (my pops is an electrician and guitar repair guru) So this brand new bass was shipped with a faulty pickup. Is this a Fender problem or a MusiciansFriend problem? I need to send the stock pickup back to the company. MusiciansFriend said i could send the bass back and they would send out a new one once they received it. Screw that. So i threw some Quarter Pounders on there and now it works flawlessly. Write back with what I can do or recommend. thanks.
