"This is a Fender Precision bass with sunburst finish, played by Guy in the earliest days of the band. A total one-off, this was modified to include a strange but wonderful alternative pickup." - From Coldplay's [end of decade clearout sale catalog](http://www.originalprop.com/public_html/coldplay/Coldplay-End-of-Decade-Clearout-Sale-Charity-Auction-eBay-Memorabilia-Catalog-Portal.pdf) where they auctioned off their gear.more
This is my first instrument. I upgraded bridge, headmachines and pickup. Badass 2 Chrome bridge, Grover 22:1 Black Head Machines, Seymour Duncun Quater Pound Precision Pickup.
Does the job for its price range. Nothing particularly fancy to say about this guitar, other than it could probably be done up and made into something really nice for not that much money.
Besides the obvious (setup out of the box), this bass has been my go-to for classic rock. The tone is pretty decent after a swap out of the pickups (Fenders). Sounds good, less buzz than my Fender and holds tune. Fun to play.
