    see that's what i like to see. take 1 regular bass and some elbow grease and presto it's practicly a new bass
     
  5. Not yet but.....

    One day($ permitting) I would love to add a differant pre to my EDC700.Not sure which one.As I
    am a single dad of three I don`t plan out stuff til I have the cash in hand(or checking account :D ).The
    EDC700 is a comfy ass ax and I think the stock Mighty Mite pups are good enough,just think an aftermarket preamp would give me better tone.

    haha...there I go thinking again. :p

    thanks man, It really is a good bass... I like it much better than fenders of the same vintage... Plus my neck isn't all screwy like most fenders that old... Plus I enjoy 2x2 headstocks more :D

    I dunno, I probobly will never get rid of her.. hell I only payed 150 for that bass and 300 for the upgrades... :bassist:
