I looked under the pick guard on the Squier Precision V and it comes stock with the Jazz pups.
Since I don't know what the pups are I was anxious to find out whether it had been modded to active, and it hasn't. Standard passive pups in this bass.

Well, I am a bassaholic. Or something. I have done some changes since the last post. I bought a nice golden Peavey Millennium USA for coffee money, just becaue it was a sin letting such a fine instrument float around not being played. The ultimate Nearly-Lakland bass there is. But a friend fell in love with it and bought it from me. It matched his tuxedo too...

Then I realised the Select Jazz Bass wasn't for me, it was so "no-bluesy" it just hurt. I traded it for a nice Fender Precision '57 American Vintage. Surely I lost money on that trade, but I got what I wanted: a P-bass with maple neck with all what it makes for the tone...


...just like Champagne...

They're both nice looking basses Roger. You can't beat a good P bass.
How many do you have right now? I'm down to three so I can play each one occasionally.

When you ask: how many, do you mean P-basses or ALL basses?
The basses "in traffic" are following:
- Dingwall Sklar (main axe)
- Lakland Bob Glaub JB 4
- Skyline Decade 4
- Skyline 55-02 fretless
- Fender P'57 RI for Elvis stuff
Then there are some more:
- Dingwall Voodoo Prima 6 for "six string stuff"
- Old Jazz Bass, more or less retired
Then my two uprights for that stuff...
And a couple more that are not in active use.

I'm like Jim, holding at three basses so I can keep track of what I have, LOL.  And I'm not kidding--typical example of my forgetfulness: today I'm looking for a compression bandage so I can wrap some frozen gel around a slightly twisted ankle, looking everywhere, mumbling to myself "where could I have left it" when I bust out laughing because I realize I'm wearing it.  Same thing happens with my eyeglasses.  So three basses is about all I can manage without a bunch of "where'd I leave the jazz" or "where'd this PJ come from?"    :o :( ;)

Roger - that's a nice list of basses. I haven't seen a Dingwall in person and only saw one Lakland but didn't get to play it. Thanks for sharing.

Bob - that made me laugh out loud.

I'm gonna try real hard to stay with the basses I have, at least for a year, hopefully. The '15 Precision is #1 right now, but I look forward to playing the other two as well. The Squier sounds really nice and the neck feels good under my fingers, and the Jazz is a close second to the P so I'm pretty happy right now.
And that's before I get to thinking about my Eden gear.  ;D
