    Ive heard loads of people say stuff about hotrodding their bass.
    but...what does this actually mean?
    I know a guy with a "American hotrod P bass" and it has a J pickup at the bridge. and on Mike Dirnt's signature P bass the pickups are "hotrodded".

    Is it just an american word, for modification?





    oh btw just for fun i looked it up on urban dictionary, and heres what i got http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=hotrod

    so im assuming its something similar to the first definition right? improving performance?

    That is it, to modify to improve performance. It comes from cars which used to be called hot rods when "souped up". Now you have another American term to look up...
