    And it sounds sick! Really punchy,warm,fat sound. To my ears way better then ash/alder P. Ultimate slap sound. Just amazing.

    Rule: No picture, no bass!

    No question in my mind that mahogany tonewood makes killer basses!

    Only problem is the hole in your wallet that mahogany basses create.

    That's a PV (Peavey) Patriot not a P (Precision).

    I had side by side test with Squier Precision Classic Vibe 60's. Sounds like P on drugs. :D

    I think he meant to say Precision on steroids, which is common parlance around here. Congrats on the bass. Great deal too, I was tempted as well when I saw it in the classifieds. Enjoy the bass.

    One cool side-note.
    In 1963 Fender did a very small amount of red mahogany body instruments. I've seen a Strat., Tele, Jazz Bass, and Precision Bass with this stock mahogany body. All were made in 1963.
    Most were Dakota Red in color. I played the 1963 mahogany P-Bass. It sounded amazing. tight, defined, bell like.
    Dont know why Fender never kept doing this as an option.

    This guy used one for a little while, not sure if you are a fan of him though.

    Always tempted to get one of those. Probably would if it had a fatter neck.

    Peavey Patriots are nice basses.

    (Based on the 5:35AM posting, I'm assuming the OP lives outside the US.)

    I ask myself same thing. Mahogany P's have sick sound. :) I only wish if I could try it on "better" rig. To see what it really can do.

    Very cool and congrats!!

    Mahogany is underrated. One of my favorite basses is my Starfire which is all mahogany minus the maple tone block and stringer.

    Anthony Vitti has a mahogany 69 seafoam J you can check out on YouTube.

    You don't think that it may have more to do with the fact that it has a Super Ferrite pickup vs the mahogany body?

    Except the fact that the comparison was done on two separate instruments would very likely have an even larger impact on the comparison.

    I compared several P pickups against the Super Ferrite on the same test bed.

    "I compared several P pickups against the Super Ferrite on the same test bed."

    And...?

    May be a great combination- mahogany and the Super Ferrite.
