    Okay - so there's a Precision Club & a 5 string Club, but not a 5 string P-Bass Club specifically (that I know of).

    There have been quite a few threads where my fellow P5 owners have enthusiastically posted how much they love theirs, sooooo....

    Let this meeting officially come to order! Any P5 will do (Fender, Lull, Alleva-Coppolo, Sadowsky, Nordy, Dingwall, Xotic, Alien Audio, etc, etc, etc), as long as its a P & a 5'er! :D Let's hear from ya!

    I'll get things rolling... Here's my 2010 Fender: ImageUploadedByTalkBass1360693257.760420.jpg

    Cool, we're off to a good start!

    Does everyone think we should scrap the whole "member #" thing? I know that I don't want to keep track of it :smug: ... Unless someone else wants to volunteer!

    Well put, sir. No numbers it is! :)

    Let's just leave the memberships to "in good standing" status. Agreed?

    Ok, so it isn't a Fender. And it doesn't have a P-pickup. It's almost shaped like a P-bass, though. ;)

    Count me in. I'll post a picture when I get home tonight, but it's the same as buskman's in his first post - sunburst/tort/rosewood.

    Well since I have some fellow Fender P5 players here, let me be the first to ask a few questions:

    1) Is anyone else using chromes? And if so, how is the action on the B-String? I can't seem to get mine low enough, even after shimming the neck with a business card.

    2) Will a jazz bass pickup cover fit over the Pbass pickup?
