B20 FORCE ABT
« on: February 05, 2008, 08:59:46 AM »
I have a B20 from the mid 80's. It has the 'Force ABT' legend, 2 Select EMG jazz-style pickups with 4 controls. Does anybody have any information about this bass, especially the electronics (there are three dip switches on the PCB). I'm thinking about up-grading the pickups, bridge etc - any advice?

Cheers!

Do a search in older posts in this forum's section,AFAIK I responded to a similar issue a while ago (I mean the DIPs).
For a bridge replacement,I suggest BadAss II,Gotoh or ABM,whatever suits your taste.
For the PU's,it's somewhat harder to give an advice,there are alot of good PUs out there...what kind of music do you play?
Anyway...do some useful readings here,I'm sure you'll find your answers:

Thanks for the response, Le Basseur. I'm still deciding whether to upgrade the bass or buy a replacement. I'd like to keep it as it's been a great guitar. I play rock, funk and English/French traditional music.

Hello, Le Basseur
I can't find the post that you said about the dip switches. Could you put the link here,please.
Thanks
