Isn't the original mini-bucker essentially the same pickup as the larger one? What have they accomplished here?

Bill's Shop: Projects, Mods & Repairs / Precision Replacement neck

Do all official Fender replacement necks have the same neck pocket shape?

As in, if I bought an Allparts neck, or an American Fender neck, will it fit my ancient Mexi Precision body? That is, without creative woodworking skills, of which I have none. I can probably drill pilot holes.

I've had my 2013 EB 5 string for well over a year, and I still love it...with me that's usually a good sign.

Allen Woody was the only one I know who could make those sound really good...

I wanted one of those really bad in the 70's...think it cost $450 when a Precision was about $250

Agreed that Mel made Grand Funk...big sound, lots of slides and slurs...

An original and very cool, very rock bass sound...

Last night on an amp it was not a problem...you notice it when practicing with head phones, though..

So I guess not a problem live...

B string seems to be "deader" sounding than the first four...of course, it could be a physical thing with flat wounds and 5 strings...

First 4 strings sound really good.

As a huge Allman Bros fan...I always preferred the sound of a Les Paul...

Less attack and more sustain...almost like a horn when soloing...

Sounds great in Duane's, Dickey's, Warren's hands...sounds like no other guitar.

I always say a Fender P does everything well, is never inappropriate for whatever type of music being played.

Strung them on last night and went to a rehearsal...

Sounded good. Labella-like but nice highs and mids.

More Labella-like than TI like...nice "thunk"...but good sustain also.

Not floppy at all, but low tension...right now they feel like a keeper...B string was great even though it was a 118

Sort of like the good stuff I like about Labellas without the bad stuff(feeling like rebar, etc...). Definitely the most highly polished, smoothest set of strings I have felt.

Not to sound like Talkbass...but has anyone tried a Labella product called "Low tension flexible flats"?

Right now I am more tempted by the EPI Classic IV Pro...

Through body guitar...

USA Gibson Pups...

Isn't it pretty much a real bird?...am I missing something?
