IIRC, the entire first album was recorded on a P Bass. The bass lines were largely written by Ace, and played by Ace, Paul, Gene, and possibly a studio musician. There are too many stories floating around in these days of the interwebz, but the above seems to be the general consensus. I do seem to recall an interview with Gene in the early '90s in which he talks about the early stuff all being recorded on a Precision. However, I am old, and my memory may be suspect...
