Mine is a Schecter Diamond P 4. A monster that has to be tamed. It wants to provide more growl and sustain than I'd like sometimes. Even after muting it still has something to say even if it is vibration in the wood. It doesn't always have my favorite tone in mind but responds well to touch and absolutely sings mid neck. Often I'll find different ways to squeeze out what i want to hear when it wont comply. Despite any fighting I seem to pull off cooler licks so i practice on it more often than my jazz. Not sure what it is but I really like this bass. It's a rewarding tool but its a sassy one.
Cool thread. My current P is a sassy beeotch. I'm slowly learning how to treat her like a lady. I bought her some designer TI's, a beautiful set of pickups and dressed her in the most lovely blue gown I could find. She hasn't asked me up to her apartment yet, but bought me a bagel the other day.
