    Let me just say now, that this bass has seen better days.

    It’s got some finish cracks and the precision pickup doesn’t seem to work. The jazz pup is super noisy.

    But hey, it was only $90.

    It’s been unreal around here with people cleaning up and cleaning out their houses and what not.

    This guy also had a Glarry Bass. It was an interesting yellow, Precision shaped object and it looked cool, but it had the largest neck i’ve Ever encountered.

    @Bassman96 This guy had quite the collection. Here’s just the ones he was selling. And the original listing pics from this bass.

    So what kind of noise is the bridge pup making? Hopefully the pickups are just loose solder joints or something easy like that.

    It just sounds like single coil noise to me, but a bit excessive. That could have been his amp though.

    I’m kind of scared to open it up, because of the finish cracks at the pickguard screws, I’m worried what someone may have messed with while in there.

    That is kinda a common spot for cracks though. It is a weak spot for temp change expansion to happen. Same with the neck joint crack. I wouldn't worry too much about them. But still... Could be a rats nest in there lol.

    Thanks!

    Hey, @Bassman96
    The neck pickup is completely dead.

    Likely a broken winding in that dented spot there. That sucks. Guitar Madness had a decent pbass pickup I think. Pretty sure it's the same one GFS sells without the $30 shipping.

    I have a standard pj Precision I could steal the part from, but now that I have this, I think I’m just going to sell that. More pics coming soon on this though.
