    If so, how is it so defined, even and tight sounding?

    Doesn't sound like one to me, but if it is you can be sure they were running at least one of the studio's compressors on it ;)

    Yeah I bet. I bring it up because to me P bass sounds a lot more . . . boomy. This sounds tight.

    Definitely not a P-Bass. Not sure what Harold Robinson plays but it's def a modern 5-6 string.

    Got it. Something with the treble rolled off. For a minute there, I had a p Bass GAS.
