I have this old squire P bass that I am very attached to. However, it plays like complete crap. The neck is totally messed up. The action on it is way too high because if i lower it, the strings hit the frets and buzz on every fret and make unbearable noises. The pickups kinda blow too. And it kinda sounds crappy plugged in, kind of empty and trebel-ish. My question. How can I remedy all these problems... would buying a new neck do it? I know that in theory, the costs are not justified. It would be much easier and cost efficient to buy a whole new bass, but I'm quite attached to this one. If buying a new neck would remedy it, from where could I get one? It doesn't have to be an exact replacement. Just something that will function well and fit on the body. and what about pickups... how much would a good set of those set me back? don't tell me I'm wasting my money, because I know I am.
