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)
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
PS: your beautiful drakkar (oops...) bass in the avatar can't compete
OP asked for a 24 fret P/J
Not a PJ, but heres Bess:
Once again, there is no such thing as "best" in the objective sense - only in the subjective sense.
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.
Please pardon the non-P/J bass in the middle....
Im a sucker for a white spector !
I vote NS-2 also...
Washburn Taurus T14
But i'm just biased
Just get something you like, Its harder to land on a bad apple these days.
If money was no object I'd go with the Fodera YYD
O.K. I'll play. Here are a few of my fav's.
If by "best" you mean "most sparkly", then I offer my frankenfender:
Hmmm, a few frets missing in the last two posts...
Ooops.... sorry didn't see the "24 fret" requirment.
