Upgrade pickups now or buy new e-bass in a couple of years?

    Title says it all really. I bought a very cheap bass for starting on, and to use as a beater, and now I would like it to sound better. So, should i buy a pair of pickups for $60~ now or wait 2, 3, or even longer to drop $350 + on a new, better, bass?

    You probably haven't played your bass enough to even tell if it would be any better with different pickups.
    Work on your playing with the bass you have. And, play as many different basses as you can get your hands on so in a couple of years you'll KNOW what you really like in a bass.
