    hey guys, i am gettin a new bass and my mom wanted me to ask aruond a bit on yalls oponions im leaning towards the Fender Lyte with the p/j pickups or a dean rhapsody r the vintage Z bass from dean. im reallyin wanting the Fender. i can get any pickups id like for them and strings. *onthe fender cuz the guy owns a shoP*

    prices:fender 275 rhapsody:300 vintage:300

  2. I have the Lyte Deluxe, its a great bass. It doesn't have the growl that some want, its definately a more refined bass. Its VERY versatile, slaps and picks very well. Fingering sounds good to, although the upper end is a little brittle. Its missing a little something in the bottom end, but can somewhat be compensated for with EQ. Its definately plays very well.

    I don't know what new PUPs would do to the sound, but reviews I've read seem to favour EMGs over stock.
