Nickel Lo-Riders are a good choice! The stock strings are actually pretty good, too.
Congratulations on your purchase. Before reading these posts I went on line to learn about these basses and to get an idea of what they went for. Funny thing, I found a place that had "blemished" models at a reduced price. I don't get it. Its already road worn, yet the "blemished" model cost less? I found that funny
I recently picked up a 50 RW p bass here and after a quality setup it was much better. Then I did a gig with it (only way for me to really assess anything anymore) and I found the overall tone inconsistent from string to string and up/down the neck.
BUT THEN I put in a pair of Aguilar pups and now its another animal.
Played a few gigs since and got several "what the hell is that thing it sounds great "
i have a "regular" shaped pj bass but I also wanted the no frills 1 pickup deal with the retro throwback vibe and am pretty happy with this now especially after the Aguilar install.
Congrats and enjoy
Are these RWs all maple necks only???
The Precision is maple fretboard. The Jazz is rosewood.
I just sold my fifth RW yesterday (here). I still have two more, but I can attest they are as reliable and comfortable as anything I've ever played. The 'bang for the buck' factor beats anything.
Happy for you congrats~
Buy her a gift from Tiffanys, that little blue box will make her forget all about your gear indiscretions.problem solved, youre welcome.
My favorite strings for the Fender Precision.
She got that for valentines. Ill find something to make up for it I suppose.
I may have misunderstood this thread, the 50s P RW I have is the Mike Dirnt (tele bass) model p bass.
This has a Rosewood fingerboard.
Maybe the stock pickups in the standard p RW are better than the stock Dirnt but I didn't care for the stock Dirnt at all.
Ah, yeah that model does come with rosewood, but there is a maple option as well. I sorta had my eye on the white blonde one with a maple board, but I'm still leaning towards the standard RW precision.
According to the blurb on the Fender site and the wiring diagrams for both the regular 50's RW precision and the Mike Dirnt one, the pickups are different. However, I have seen a few used RW precisions with different pickups, but I guess that's just a matter of preference.
I see Zzounds doesn't have any Fenders listed on their site. I'm. Really interested in getting one of these road worn P's. How does this kind of online site work? Do they just get stuff in randomly?
Don't count on it. My wife claims that her beauty expenses should be and are part of our overall household expenses, and is not a lavish spend.
Hmm zzounds definitely carrys Fenders. I just go to the bass section and then organize the results by manufacturer.

I'm probably just not navigating the site properly. I entered Fender into the search and I got no matches.
I dont know? Did you try those direct links that mark beem posted? Those worked fine for me. I also tried searching "fender" and a ton of results popped up. You sure you are looking on zzounds.com?
I really think im going to try out a set of D addario chrome flats on this bass. Id only ever tried them once and loved the feel but it was unplugged so ive got no real idea how they sound exactly from a personal experience perspective.
