1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. Thank you for all of your feedback.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

    I assume you're comparing the 50s P and 60s P? Depends if you want the single coil sound or split pickup sound... completely different.

    They're very different basses. Different look, different pickups, different tonality, different neck. Which do you prefer? The original '51 PBass style or the "new improved" style that came to market in '57. And I use "new improved" euphemistically.

    I love that the 51 comes in LPB. I also love the sonic blue of the 60s. I would go with the 51.
