Well it's my birthday tomorow, and my mom at lunch tells me we should go look at some basses, and see what I want. So I'm not going to complain with this- she takes me to the local store, and so the battle begins. It comes down to a Sterling and this American Deluxe Fender Precision (P / MM). I was looking at the specs of the fender, and I noticed it has a "pan pot" for pickup switching. Is that just the same as a Blend pot? If so, how do I "use it correctly." Anyway, as you can tell by the title, I decided to got with the fender. Got it used for a good deal (compared it to ebay deals, and mine was cheaper). I know the rules- no pics, no exist. So look for pics in a few days or so. I'll get to try it out tonight at some benifit show. Hopefully it sounds good in a band setting.
