Doing my first electronics/hardware upgrade. I have heard people mention upgrading inexpensive instruments is a bad idea due to the weak resale value. I am not worried about the resale, and could always pull the upgraded parts for another project, then reinstall the original stuff. I plan to keep this bass as well. I have an older Korean Ibanez SR405 that has an awesome neck, and is really light, but the preamp is loud/noisy and the tuning keys are weak. So, I am upgrading several components starting with the preamp and tuners. Found a like-new OBP-3 for less than half price, same with some Gotoh tuners, so seems like a good start. Anyone else do a budget bass upgrade? Pics are always cool.
