  1. I have a Track two in my collection and it's my go-to for standard tuned stuff. The stock pickup is a DiMarzio Model P and I loved it so much I put a model P in my MIM Precision. If you've got bridge problems I recommend replacing the stock one with a Hipshot Supertone. It's a big hunk of metal, but man does it help. I used it recently for this video. The basses you see are the basses that were used to record that portion of the song.
  2. Well that facebook page is a.....wild ride.
  3. Just grabbed my bottle of hand sanitizer (70% isopropyl alcohol) and it did the trick! Thanks!
  4. A previous owner of my 2005 Mexican standard P seemed to be embarrassed about the basses country of origin and attempted to cover the "made in Mexico" on the front of the headstock with marker. It's never really bothered me until recently and I'd like to remove it without removing anything else, if possible Has anyone any recommendations?
  5. I used 400 grit, followed by 0000 steel wool. Just removed a light layer as I didn't have anything to finish the neck with. But I'm considering going the whole hog now. I just have to get some gunstock wax.
  6. Based on me trying it out. Sure I loved how it played, the fact that it was roadworn didn't really matter to me, apart from the feeling in the back of the neck. It's not a 1400 quid bass in my opinion, it's a 1k bass, tops. I could buy a vintera and go at it with some steel wool and save myself 500 quid.
  7. Because I've seven basses, can't afford another, don't have the room and there's nothing I own I want to part with right now to pay for it.
  8. The roadworn P has been discontinued for at least a year now I think. A shop close to me has a sunburst languishing on the rack for the past 2+ years at €1399, which I think is over priced. They're a great bass and I'd love to own one, but they're not worth more than 1k in my opinion.
  9. I've always liked the look of these, but never seen one in the flesh.
  10. You're bang on. It's €15k or about GBP13k
  11. So if a 66 P has an asking of GBP6250, anyone want to hazard a guess at what the asking on this 59 is? (I know, I just want to see if any of you guys get close) https://www.someneckguitars.com/collections/featured/products/fender-precision-bass-1959
  12. Are both basses stock? Same necks? Same country of origin? Same era? Nothing really wrong with either but knowing more about each bass would help narrow down the difference.
  13. Looks like a Dimarzio model P, a great replacement pickup. I've got them in two of my basses.
  14. Funny you should say that, I have two more basses that I left off this shootout: 2005 MIM Standard P with Dimarzio Model P 2015 MIM Standard Jaguar (my profile pic) with stock PJ pickups. Perhaps they'd be better to do along with my Jazz? All three are tuned DGCF (well the P is CGCF, but close enough)
  15. Damn, both you guys got it spot on! It wasn't even a challenge! The red herring was the Jazz, it's tuned DGCF so the riff was played at the 2nd position rather than open.
