    I'am not a fender guru, But for the biggest part they all sound good. The terms Bright as in treble or Mellow or fat for bass better express tonal qualities, with everything else in between. Also the most important part is how well the guitar sustains. Strings and pickups are the critical concern , and will make or break the total sound. You may find that the guage that pulls off intonation quality best might be the guage you may not like . On the 70s P-Bass, Flatwounds work and sound exceptionally nice. .105"-to .045" Thou. I strongly recommend that you take your Bass to a good reputable shop and ask the experts, they super tune guitars. When playing your bass on a clean EQ channel your guitar should not buzz, pop, or hum. It should be very clean or clear. Do not worry about your Spanish, You came to the right place for help. We may not all have the right answers but we try hard . Best Regards Bass Whaler

    In addition to all the great info bass whaler posted, it's a lot easier to warm up the tone of an instrument than it is to brighten it. With either, you should be able to EQ a nice warm sound. Some folks will also recommend flatwounds. The best way to pick, as either will warm up fantastically, is by feel. Which one feels better to you?

    Ivan, If you play bass fairly well, Even if not, treat yourself to a mid range priced Bass. The quality of nearly all mid range priced Bass guitars are where you would have paid out nearly a thousand dollars 25 years ago. Competition is huge and prices have dropped. You can get a very nice Yamaha, Ibenez, Hagstrom, Samick and many fantastic Bass guitars that are keepers. Steer clear of the $99. dollar blow out specials. Some great wholesale shops around aswell, and do not forget to subscribe to Guitar world. Its good to look at how the Guitars are rated before you buy, Some great players on this forum, do not be afraid to ask them. Take care, Bass Whaler

    Strings also help I have one bass with round wounds the other with flat wounds which tend to be warmer and not as bright as round wounds.

    Squier Classic Vibe 50's P-bass - I have the sunburst one with a humbucker in the neck position, and as of today, it's the warmest, best sounding bass I own. set of flats and the V4B and she sounds plenty warm.

    The one with the rosewood fretboard. Not the maple. So my bet is on the 60s
