Seems to be an 80’s Squier bullet bass all original save for the regrettably active emg pickup. Tort is in in the mail as are flatwounds. I’ve got a couple basses already but this one has something about it I can’t define. What do you all think about the pickup situation? I don’t like having to remove the pickguard to access the battery, but i am not interested in routing a box. What pickups would you say sit at the corner of inexpensive and good enough?
    Thundertips, Sub41 and el jeffe bass like this.

    Nice bass, absolutely screams for tort and flats.

    Thanks! I think listing to the good folks here may have influenced my actions somewhat. Seems like a positive influence.

    I have a black one. Once I removed the broken truss rod nut and replaced it, it set up and sounded perfect. I actually the white on white pretty good too.

    How did you get the truss rod nut off? This one is suspicious but I haven't tackled that yet.

    I had one until recently. I really miss it but I couldn’t justify having 4 P basses so I sold it to fund my Grabber.
