    If you didn't understood 300 pages... um... then how is one more going to help?


    They're inexpensive, yet very much worth the money. People argue whether they are equal or better then Fenders. It all just depends how high of priced basses you're used to playing.
     
  6. I don't think many people are going to flat out tell you SX is better. They may say that they are just as good, or nearly as good, for less money. You might want to check out Squier Vintage Modified and Classic Vibe too..

    I saw many videos of bassists with an SX bass and its sounds good.

    I want change the Pick-ups, Tuning Machines, Potiknobs, Bridge and Strings.

    I want a bass until i can get some money for buy a good bass.

    If a change all those things, it sounds very good?

    PD: I don't want to change the hardware.

    If you want to change the Pickups, Tuning Machines, PotKnobs, Bridge and Strings you ARE changing all the hardware buddy. Sorry to break it to ya.
     
  9. I think once you get it you should play it first, if it sounds good then you don't need to waste your money on all these upgrades. I have an SX Jazz, all I've done is replace the stock strings and it sounds killer........IMHO

    There is absolutly NO NEED to change any of the hardware for an SX to sound good. Put your favorite set of strings on it, and it will be ready to go, after an initial set up.


    I gig regularly with a lightly modified SX SPB 62, and an American Standard Fender Precision. Many times, the American Standard is used as my "back up bass". :)
     
  11. By the time you end up changing all the hardware and pickups, you could have bought a better bass. Go for the better bass.

    I agree with that.

    Quality opinion of SX here is exaggerative IMHO.

    Most of cheap basses nowadays already have some more than marginal level of quality due to current CNC technology.

    It's not only SX that you could play it on the stage while you could put MIA fender as a backup bass and that does not mean that SX beats fender although opinion on music instruments are sometimes very subjective.

    I have tried 2 SXs but I started recomending Jay Turser after then.

    Well...

    Then should it buy it me?

    I'll get a band, a friends band and i'll be the bassist (I play the bass from 5 months ago).

    I want to get a good bass.

    :help:

    I have used a lightly moddified SX SPB 62 as my pricipal, or primary as we would say in the U.S. (I knew what you meant) for over 3 years now.


    Yes, I have also owned American made Fenders for over 25 years as well.

    The SX is an exelent value, and I currently alternate my SX and new American Fender back and forth as my primary bass and back up on any given night.

    SX from a show last week.

    I'll tell you this much. My personal SX (lightly modded) holds it's own quite well against my Fenders. If it didn't , I wouldn't be playing it. ;) Of the 5 P basses I currently have in my possesion, the Blue "workhorse" SX(pictured above) is the easiest to play. Jay Turser stuff is also an exelent value IMO.
