P Am. Standard-P Am. Deluxe
A couple days ago I aquired, (through trade), a 2011 Am. St. P.
I really like it, especially the neck.
However, my tax return has arrived, so I went down to the local SA to try out the Am. Deluxe P, (also a 2011). It is a very nice instument as well.
The thing is, I'm not sure I like it enough to warrent the extra $350ish it will run me to "trade up".
I liked the active "sounds" the bass was capable of, just not enough to make me go, "Wow, I gotta have this!".
Also, though I did like the neck on the D, I think the St. feels much better!
I'm not trying to "bash" either bass here, I'm just curious if anyone else has had a similar experience-
It takes less time to do a thing right than it does to explain why you did it wrong.
