After seeing one of those butterscotch colored basses I need to have one! I want to know a little bit more about them though. Specifically about the humbuckers, are they worth keeping on the bass? If so the only modifications I would want to make is a preamp, all black hardware and I want to put one of those Aguilar P bass pickups right inbetween the humbuckers. Is noise also a concern with these? It seems like at the price point there is going to be a slightly more than minor electrical issue or something of the sort. Rock on!
