Mexican p-bass with p/u upgrade

Discussion in 'Pickups & Electronics [BG]' started by pj_punka, Feb 16, 2002.


  1. Hey im looking at buying a mexican p-bass and upgrading the pickups, so i was wondering what u guys would recommend. Itll be alot cheaper to get the mexican and upgrade the pickups than buy the american i think.

    Imo, the MIM P offers the biggest bang for the buck, but you may be able to find a used MIA P for close to the same price as a MIM + upgrades. Im not sure of Bass prices in Australia, but its worth a look.

    Good luck, and welcome to TalkBass:cool:

    I'd suggest getting a Squier Affinity P-Bass (Solid Alder Body) and upgrading that. With that I think you'd get closer to a American Sound. Just drop in some new pickups in there.

    Put a Badass II on that Affinity, too. It just makes the sound.
