    Hi All

    Just after some info on any PH pickup arranged basses after I saw Troy Sanders playing one. Info I'm after is brands and prices mostly.

    Cheers

    Do you mean like Billy Sheehan or are you meaning a humbucker in the bridge position?

    Sorry, humbucker on the bridge.
     
  4. Troy Sanders plays a Fender American Deluxe Precission. To my knowledge, the bass is entirely stock apart from strings. The humbucker is, literally, two single coil Jazz pups put together.

    As for other brands, Schecter offer the Diamond P-Custom which is a clone of the American Deluxe P. Alternatively, if you're keen on a Jazz/Humbucker setup, Schecter also have the Stargazer-4 model which is a (shoddy) clone of a Rickenbacker bass.

    That Diamond p looks very very nice. What's the neck like on them? I struggle with p bass necks as I've got smallish hands.

    Just been on Evilbay and there is a 2006 neck but no pre 2010 neck. Damnation!
