Has this turned into a "show my bass" thread? Probably. But I'd hazard to guess it's because a lot of us see "dat bass"
that is so cool that we have to have it. In my case, my pick for the "coolest looking P-Bass" happens to be the one that pushed me, a drummer, into taking the plunge and start learning bass.
So, with that said, here's My Sexy Beast
, a completely stock, late 2000's Squier P-Bass Special in satin pewter with matching headstock...
(I can't wait until next year when I can finally install some Seymour Duncan Quarter Pounders!)
I have another even older one (c. 2000) recently acquired in sunburst to be my beater/travel bass. However, the white pickguard wasn't doing anything for me. Since it's a rare, older 14-hole pickguard I've painted it gloss black rather than buying a replacement that most likely won't fit or line up. Now if only I could justify buying another P-Bass Special in walnut stain, then I'd have my trifecta.
Is it the only one I think is seriously cool? Not at all. I think the Axl Badwater
looks awesome in both the distressed brown or white/brown crackle. And even though it's not a Precision body, I'm looking forward to trying out a Fender Blacktop Jazz with the dual Precision pickups
. Now if only I could win some scandalously high lottery…
