    Hi there,just wondering if anyone has tried or owns a Pino PBass and if so are they worth the extra money. Ive wanted to buy a vintage bass for a while now, but am always worried that i'll end up with a bad one. I figured being a custom shop bass The Pino Palladino would be a good choice. Any feedback would be appreciated, regards Kevin

    Very expensive, but I've yet to hear anything but glowing reviews from owners. I've personally liked every one I have played. Killer basses.

    Hey Kevin,
    the pino is worth every penny. It is the best p bass fender has made in years. I have a 69 p bass and the pino is just as good as that. It has the warmth you want from a p bass and the neck is wonderful. They actually sand down the back of the neck so it is nice and smooth. Really a top notch instrument. If you have the funds because they arent cheap Iwould go for it.

    If you want a vintage one you have to go to a store and play it. There are some really good vintage fenders out there, it just may take some time to find the right one. hope this helps.

    If it were me, I would at least look into the G&L Lb-100 before you buy anything... Ash body and vintage alnico pickup which will undoubtedly deliver the vintage vibe you seek coupled with the stability of a 6 bolt neck and the best bridge in the business. You also get to choose your aesthetics and neck dimensions. It has a slightly different body shape then the Fender, but I guarantee it will hold its own against the Pino bass.

    Thanks everyone, sounds like I might be buying a Pino Pbass. I know what you mean about trying before you buy and as I live in Adelaide Australia there not to many Vintage basses for sale around this neck of the woods. Im really a Fender guy and have tried a couple of G&L basses but never quite clicked with them. Thanks again for your comments, Regards Kevin
