My plan to sell my 6 and pick up a nice 5 with the proceeds has gone awry – the 6 sold, but I couldn’t pull the trigger on a new bass in the end. Thanks life! I should be able to pick up one in a few months, but until then I’ve got an Ibanez GSR205. It’s one of the older ones with 3 pots and Jazz style pickups. Does anyone have any experience with these? Given that I’m still saving for a good 5, I want to mod it on the cheap – to make it a regularly gigable interim player. I’ve just ordered a high mass bridge from eBay (pic below) and right now the plan is to put that on with a new set of strings, set it up and change out the pots and cap for better quality components. Other options are a set of pickups like those Wilkinsons you can pick up on eBay for $40, or scrapping the new pots and caps for a cheap preamp like a Belcat (with the stock pickups). What do you guys think – would a set of pu’s like that even be an improvement on the originals? How do I get maximum bang for minimum buck? Anything I’m missing? And what else would you recommend doing? Thanks!
