i'm really curious about this, why Fender doesn't make a Fender P passive 5 string in the American Serie? i'm a big fan of the Precision and even if some fool guys call the Precision the bad Fender because it has only 1 pickup, i'd really like to know if there are 5 strings precision out there. i only know the Mike Lull P 5. plus, do you know something about the wilkinson conversion kit? i found this Q&A on the Bass player old site: In a old issue of BP there was a review of a product that could turn a Fender 4-string into a 5-string without drilling new holes. Who makes it? Cecil DeMeerleer Tahoe City, CA You're referring to the Wilkinson 4+1 Bass Conversion Kit, which was reviewed in Summer '90. This allows you to convert a Precision or similar bass into a 5-string. The kit's bridge (available in chrome or black) uses the standard screw holes, but it has five saddles and a rear-mounted tuner. The extra string is anchored to the headstock by replacing the string tree with a new part. The kit also includes a self-lubricating nut blank, a B string, and allen wrenches for adjustment. List price is $169.99. Contact Wilkinson at 3154 E. LaPalma Ave. Unit A, Anaheim, CA 92806; (800) 446-6010.
