    Mars Cowling-Pat Travers Band-just listen to any early Travers. Outstanding bass lines.

    John Deacon-Queen-oustanding bass lines and smooth as a criminal.

    1. Paul Jackson from his Headhunters days. I don't think he plays P's now but there is no doubt that's what it is on that first Head Hunters recording.

    I have to say Deacon John is my favorite of the Precision guys, overall.

    I like Jeff Berlin's earlier modded Precision playing. I'm mentioning him more for name than anything. His Dean sounds even cooler, which is odd.

    The "complete" Precision man musta been Duck Dunn, though. The pipe, the stone simple lines...he was born for the Fender.

    In his early MO days, I recall Armstrong using a Jazz with a fretless P-bass neck....& a Maestro Brassmaster pedal.
