and slowly trying to incorporate this during writing sessions
Squier Bass VI, white w/tortoise shell, no alterations (I've heard replacing the nut is a good idea)

I have a similar standard Jazz of the same age. It looks great slightly aged!

I've swapped out the bridge on my VI but haven't tried replacing the nut. I think it might help though.

Bass VI = Love.

Seriously toying with picking one up. Is the vibrato any good on it? Not looking to dive, just get my Morricone on.

I personally wasn't finding any use for it and ended up swapping the trem out for a solid plate. Works better for my style and I think it stays in tune better

Is that a very expensive change to make? Hadn't even considered that after having no joy trying to find a similar solution for a Floyd...

I don't remember what I spent, but these guys are selling them for $50:

Pretty sure I've seen them on Reverb for less though

Wow. Cheap as chips, then. Certainly something to put on the back burner, thanks!

It's here! To be clear that's just one bass shot from different angles. It's heavy as fuck cuz the body is one piece of walnut. But hey who needs a healthy spine, right?
