    Just got a 79 P and tried to record it using DGCF tuning. Wow, this beast plays and records amazingly well! Nothing comes close! I was completely a JB guy but now I'm sold to.... P?! :help:

    Well, I have a bunch of different basses, so for me it's not a problem to switch over to bigger or smaller necks. I also play 5-strings, so nothing too big here. :) And to be true, it's not as big as I thought. Quite comfortable. :)

    hahahsomething similar happened to me!

    Showed up to the recording session with a ric, a 72J, and a 78 P. I was at the booth, not visible to the sound guy. I tried the ric, the j, and finally the P. With the P, the sound guy was like "stop right there, that's the sound we want". I was also playing through a mic'd b15N.

    Nice! I have more P-Basses than sense or talent, but one of my favorites is a '79 with many evil mods, wearing old Fender flats. What kind of strings are you using?

    These are 50-110 Rotosounds in DGCF tuning. I'll try the flats when done with my recording session. Probably the heavy gauge because I started to like the DGCF tuning.
