I like my Precision...can't get past the tone.
Actually, it's the original bridge plate with Fender saddles.....which doesn't really work, since the original saddles were center mounted(string thru saddle design) and the fenders are offset.
I couldn't find any center mounted saddles for replacement?
Quadzilla sent the bass to me with a replacement Fender bridge plate and saddles......but it didn't allow for string thru. So I swapped bridge plates.
Since the BAIII allows for string thru, and is approx. the same size as the original bridge....it was a no brainer.
I love all my other basses.
But my P-bass is my desert island bass.
If I could only play one play, the P-Bass, would edge out my J-Bass.
And my 5-string, and my fretless.
Another P-love thread, cool!
I started out with a P in the early '90s. Been through quite some basses since then and returned to the Precision couple of years ago.
I will never part with this 1975 P. Love it.
I'd love to add the bridge cover to my P....but I actually palm mute during one of our songs.
BADASSIII bridge installed.
It was easy, except the string thru holes didn't line up.
The string thru holes in the body were angled slightly....so I had to machine the BAIII to match. I just converted the ADG holes in the bridge to slots to allow for the angle.
PITA! for sure, but it sounds good, and has more sustain overall.
Pics to follow.
I just love the sound of the/my precision bass. Not necessarily foresaking all other bass tones, I just like the tone...a lot.
Another chance to show off my babies.
They were Ps..I turned them into PJs...Best of both worlds. Me thinks.
Yes... another p thread. I love my P, an MIM I bought it off the bay a couple of years ago as I needed a passive... thought it was going to be a POS, turned out to be one of the best basses I've ever owned...
Only ever so slightly pimped out!
