Thought this might be a good thread that might serve as a warning for those contemplating a bass so they might see the other side/cons of the purchase. Mine is an American Standard P5 that it really pains me to return. I've never owned a P and have found that I really like all aspects of this bass except for the weak B string. As much as I've tried, I can't get past this issue for a guitar that cost over $1500 Cdn. Did a set up on it (truss rod needed a LOT of tightening) & raised the pups but it still lacks volume and punch. Hope Long and McQuaid honors their 30 day return policy, if not, I can live with it. Anybody else needed to return a bass because it didn't meet with their expectations?
