Im thinking about modding my cheapo Performance Series 4 string Spector. Im looking to totally gut the pups, preamp, pots and all that. I also want a new bridge and tuners. I have never done anything like this but I know enough to do it. To help me out a little could you guys post the upgrades you would get? I need Bridge Nut Pickups (curently running two EMG-SSD's) Preamp Pots anything else that you folks say I need I think I pretty much have it under control but I some questions. 1) Does the electronics and pots and stuff some with the pickups? 2) Do I need any special tools for construction and setup of the bass 3) Should I look into getting a nice neck? I want this thing to feel really nice and I think the neck is cheap 4) If pickups come with all the electronics and stuff are they low quality? If so can I get better 3rd party electronics? I play alot of fingerstyle, and a good deal of slapping poping and raking. I like the sound of Incubus and Victer wooten, just to give you a clue for the sound I like. I know I will never sound as good as vic with this bass (or any bass for that matter), but his tone is crystal clear and hi-fi. And dirk from incubus has such a nice warm fat tone, I would like to be able to get a tone that can do somthing around those lines. So there we go, hopefully a few of the nice guys here can help me out. Thanks in advance for the help guys, I would really appreciate it.
