any impressions and descriptions are appreciated as im currently tossing up between the Freeman and just renecking another CV to replace the one i should have never gotten rid of.
At least just like any other bass can be equal one another, when stickin' to the very same model
So every Classic Vibe '60s "P" (sonic blue, like the one I once owned, or fiesta red) should be more or less equal one another
Not the case with Classic Vibe '50s "P" (the lake placid blue one I own is basswood, the butterscotch blond one is pine)
Given that, black or blonde, a Matt Freeman is a Classic Vibe '60s with a maple fingerboard (as long as a James Johnston Jazz is a lake placid blue Classic Vibe '60s Jazz bass) I really think you'll find what you're lookin' for in it.
Or rather in a brand new Squier Chris Aiken Precision: still a basswood body with himass bridge and brass barrell saddles, it sports mirror pick guard and a neck with pearloid big block on
