Woah those half round strings feel freaky at first, I thought they were sticky and were old stock or something. But according to Talkbass, thats how they are. They do wear in though apparently, even in the last hour they've improved beyond compare to how they first felt. So many put them on then bin them in the first 5 mins. I love that they feel pretty smooth but still keep the P-Bass tone that I think would be lost with full flats on it.
Mods to this bass so far include:
Removed poly from neck and oiled, reshaped all the sharp edges that bug me.
Reshaped headstock (the standard sx shape bugs me)
Fret dress, recrown, polish etc
Rio Grande vintage pickups
Still to come:
Sounds like a million bucks
Plays like buttah
Worth the cost of upgrades? Bass cost me 100 bucks, I've spent about another 4 hand shandy or so on it - yeah I won't be selling unless I get a special p-bass for next to nothing...
