    The idea of a 24 fret P bass comes up here and there, I thought I would do a rough mock up in Photoshop. I kept the lower horn length and only deepened the cutaway.

    I would also tune it BEAD, the 24th fret D string is the same as the 19th fret G, just one note shy of a 5 string P. I use that high Eb note once in a blue moon anyway. It's definitely growing on me.

    I'd love a 24 fret P. Makes sense to me.
    They don't exist at Fender's though.

    Actually this is not entirely true, I can think of a few models that are close :
    - The Urge which is a JPJ setup
    - The Katana and Performer that had 24 frets and a P pickup but with different body shapes
