Good P bass!

(5.0)
Shango87 on May 21, 2014 (updated May 22, 2014)
Blues R&B Gospel Jazz Classical

Got this bass from a friend via wholesale and got it used for $1300! Everything including the case and the certificate indicating it is of the first 100 made came with it. Put some flatwounds in it and I got that fat old school sound with the tone rolled off. Got it for a great price, though don't know I'd pay full price for it. So far I love it!

Killer P Bass

(5.0)
Koz on June 2, 2013 (updated June 4, 2013)
Professional Blues Jazz Alternative Rock Heavy Metal Rap

This is a great Bass. Excellent feel and tone. Fender did a top notch job on the finish and neck. It has a bit more midrange than many of the older Fender P Basses I've played in the past, but you can easily role off the tone to get the old school P Bass sound. I'm totally digging this Bass.
