My new SX P/J (p body) came today. This is not a review, I'm just curious to see what feedback there is. It's alder body, 34", maple neck. I've been reading here about them, and I'm a tinkerer, so I bought one, with intent to make it better. It had 500k pots, I had 3 used, but working Alpha mini 250's, and an orange drop .047 cap, (sounded a bit brittle, so I changed it.) Set the truss rod, action (1/8" at the 12th fret), (lower than I play, but I wanted to see about fret buzz), set the intonation, and gave it a workout. The fret ends aren't manicured, and polished, but there was also nothing uncomfortable about them. I couldn't get it to buzz, not anywhere, even with action too low for me. I've changed pups in Fenders, in the past, some of which sounded bad enough to where I would never gig with the sound. I'm very taken with both the p and the j, after the pot change, I'm sure they are staying. Not to give the wrong idea, it's not as fine in the details as my Fenders, not as nice. I put a set of D'addario Chromes on it,(the stings were terrible, I did that before setup), (a broken in set). The tuners are smooth enough, they are staying. The only other thing I did was remove the bridge, and drill it out to fit larger diameter strings. I'm going to shield everything, it isn't really noisy in my home, it probably would be on a stage. Is it that I am very inarticulate, in thinking this is a really good bass, or do some of them come very ready to go like this?
