::UPDATE:: I had to replace the electronics on this bass about a year ago as i was getting noises from it, so i replaced with a bartolini pickup and seymour duncan 3 band Music Man eq.
This bass came to me at a perfect setup just some truss rod tweaking that is all.
It is a great bass I play through a Mesa Boogie 400+ and a 2x15 custom made cabinet
