    What is the best bass with 24 frets and P/J Pickup Configuration?

    It was a Custom made Soundgear with AFR (reverse) P and J configuration and electronic (two band equalizer) full maple neckthru construction

    A small, well balanced yet heavy bass with an unmistakeable electronic with tight lows and ringin' trebles, capable of a lot of output and perfect (a bit like a MIJ Marcus Miller's) to get listened to with slap as well, even in an environment of deep saturation and downtuned distortion (I personally experience just that)

    Cheers,
    Wallace

    A second slot can be co-occupied by both Spector/Warwick Streamer

    Sory to ruin the fun but there is no "best bass", just many great basses and even more opinions :)

    Once again, there is no such thing as "best" in the objective sense - only in the subjective sense. :rolleyes:

    That said, my vote goes to the Fender American Deluxe Precision, with 21 frets.

    Yes, that is a P pickup under the soapbar-shaped cover.

    Ok for fun then: Depending on budget of course (and custom vs non custom), but I think the new Yamaha BB2024x sounds incredible (though not 24 frets) :)

    I should point out that my bass above, whilst a custom, was cheaper than a US Standard Fender P or J.

    Replace "what's the best?" in all TB questions to read "what's your favorite", and that's the answer you're actually getting.

    [DEL]What's the best[/DEL] Whats my favorite P/J bass with 24 frets?

    Spector NS-2, CRFM and Euro basses. :bassist:

    Please pardon the non-P/J bass in the middle....
