    Keep in mind that changing from a low B to a high C will probably require more than just a change of strings.
     
  5. nut, maybe action, and might mess with pickups volume i think

    am i right?

    Yep, I think.

    Mostly that the strings probably won't fit in the nut very well. I've never tried adding a high C to any of my fivers, though, so I don't know for sure whether it would be a problem or not.

  8. The pickups are unbelievable, i almost freaked out when i first plugged it in, after using my peavey milestone III and hearing soooooo much buzz it made me sick. Im suprised after hearing everyone diss fender, I have to say this, I, Paniak17, Love Fender.

    I didn't need to change the nut on my US Curbow when I went from low B to high C.

    But, play the bass like it is for a while before you try and decide. You might not want to change.

    And, then, if you do decide to switch it out, you can be excited all over again. :D

    no mines black, i would get it in CAR but the black pickguard just doesnt work with me, though im changing the pickgaurd to a british flag hehehe. Anyway, the b string is EXTREMELY floppy, but get a heavier gauge and youll be fine, and i dont have a dig camera :p <that face is because im happy i got a new bass!
     
  13. Find a way. :D Definately a nice score!
