Finally decided to join so I can interact with other bassists. I am currently the bassist for a working band here in North Texas. My basses are a customized Fender Big Block Precision bass and an Ibanez SRT800DX. Been playing since I was in high school which was a long, long time ago. Just wanted to say hey and if anyone has a big block and is frustrated with the dead spots and intonation issues that made it disappear so fast, I have the answer you are looking for and the bass is already set up for the fix. Later.
