  1. Since i have almost no money but need a new bass I am going to get an Essex. Here is the problem do i get the Jazz bass or The BG-180. And I want to upgrade the pickups in the bridge what would you reccomend for those.
    Thanks
    John

    LMAO!!!!! I think it'll cost alittle more than he's looking to spend. ;) :cool:
     
  7. I am still not positive about the pickups... i was thinking of a J-Retro Preamp or another onboard preamp... what do you think....

    A preamp or New pickups?

    A J-Retro is about $250... ...How much $ do you want to sink into a $120 bass?
     
  9. actually i think im going to wait until i actually play it to hear how good/bad it sounds then see from there

    For a $120 bass, I'd just put EMG selects on it, leave the bridge alone and spend money on a nice comfortable strap...but that's just me.
