    ok so ive been going crazy lately getting basses haha, recently i fell in love with a 2012 American standard P Bass i played. i ended up putting it on layaway, i play alot of Motown; my questions to all fellow players is, how do the Fender Custom shop 60's Pickups sound with flatwound strings? also im open for opinions on good flatwound strings too. i use D'Addario's but i will try out some suggestions i havent yet, thanks.

    The pickups sound great on the new P's IMO. I love them with flats; and rounds for that matter. Nothing wrong with chromes, but for that Motown vibe you might try some LaBella deep talkn' flats. The now come in string thru-body sets too. Hit up bassstringsonline.com and check some out if you haven't. The sadowsky flats sound great too, kinda in the middle between the chromes and labella sets.

    Yeah if you register with the site as a VIP member (because the owner is a TB'r) you can get a discount on strings. He also just has killer prices anyway. Good luck.
