  1. Yeah, Am going to try that first but in the event that it needs pots, just wanted to have them in over Christmas, Thanks
  2. Ah yes! forgot to ask - What cap should be in there as standard?
  3. Members 0 13 posts Report post Posted 5 minutes ago (edited) Help! My son has a Mexican precision bass deluxe series-98-99 red with gold anodised pickguard with passive pickups (1 x Jazz and 1 x Precision). He has an issue with a crackly pot (not sure which) and has asked if I can sort it. I have decide that the best course of action is to replace the pots as the are reasonably cheap and it would be a good place to start. I would like to do it during the festive period, but my problem is that I can't get my hands on the instrument before Christmas so that I can see what the pots are which I would need to buy for the job. Does anyone know which pots are in the bass - 250k or 500k, Linear or Audio-taper. I THINK it currently has 2 vol + 1 master tone. Pic attached of the bass Thanks all. https://imgur.com/ei8mltF

  5. Thanks all. Just picked up a Babicz for £45 so sorted there (for now). Still open to suggestions/comments on the pups.
  6. Thanks guys. Also been looking at Babicz bridges - Any thoughts? I think the appeal with the Babicz is the fact that once set up they can be locked.
  7. Does anyone have any opinion on Bare Knuckle Bass pickups? Firstly - I'm NOT a bassist - sorry! I'm considering buying a P-Bass pickup for my son (who is a bassist) as a surprise for Christmas. He has a Mexican precision bass deluxe series-98-99 red with gold anodised pickguard with passive pickups. (See below). I have had a few BK pickups in my guitars and swear by them, just wondered if the Bass pickups were as good. Also He definitely wants to upgrade the bridge - he has suggested a Badass II but I have seen very good reports about the Hipshot Kickass - any comments there would also be appreciated. (I know that the Badass is no longer available but I have seen them around used and that wouldn't be a problem). Thanks in advance.

    YAY!!! Can't wait! Have to say a massive thank you to GreeneKing for his help, advice and patience. A lovely man to deal with. Thanks again Peter. Just need an MB Traveler 102p now if anyone has one lying around for around £250!

    You could - but I'm in Oldham! Thanks for the thought though.

    Mark bass. New or old?

    [quote name='GreeneKing' timestamp='1498487409' post='3324949'] It's become a tad traditional I think. When MarkBass first moved production to the Far East there were some concerns. They seem to have been alleviated with time. [color=#ff8c00]Yes I did it too [/color] [/quote] Must Admit, I hadn't noticed,

    Mark bass. New or old?

    That was pretty much my thoughts. It's just that some people seem to make a point that theirs is Italian made when selling one which made me wonder if they were somehow superior.

    My son is looking for a new rig and is heading down the Mark bass route (LIttle Mark head and possibly a 2x10 cab for portability). Is the Italian made stuff any better than the more recent gear? Thanks
