I've been putting together a simple contra-engineered Precision. I've taken out the volume control (you can't really adjust this on the fly as you mess up the mix and stall your playing). I've taken out the tone (never really got on with a tone circuit anyway). I'm focussing on getting one good PU and connecting it to the jack socket. If I could get an amp with just a volume control I'd be there! Or how about no volume control and go for a foot volume control? Am I alone in wanting to get back to the basics or just getting jaded with too much sophisticated kit. I just want to play - hell I could end up playing an acoustic double bass if this goes on! Would you just love to buy a bass that had one good sound, one PU, no frills. Does this bass already exist out there somewhere?
