First off, all of your input is very much appreciated. Lately I've been doing some home studio recording with an Ibanez GSR200, but I thought I'd up the production quality a bit (it's been noisy and pots are now scratchy) by investing in something a little better. I'm going for the P-Bass sound, and I pretty much had it narrowed down to a used MIM P Bass in the $250-$300 price category (specifically this one Fender Precision P Bass). I thought I might do a few minor upgrades (possibly put some 1962 fender original PUs in, refresh the pots/wiring, and add copper shielding). Then recently I learned about Rondo music and came to find this little guy SX Ursa 1 MN Ash NA - RondoMusic.com which seems like an incredible deal for the price. My question is, should I stick with the used MIM P-bass option from Craigslist or just get the new SX bass? Again, your input is appreciated. Thanks!
