So I've been looking into a P bass just because its about time I had a nice workhorse bass. I think a P would sit better with my band and be easy to record (my active bass is way too hot to get a decent signal from). I've been looking into P basses in the 500-900 dollar range and the 50s P bass caught my fancy. NOTE: I'm not talking about the old old precision design with the single coil and tele headstock. This 50's P bass has the anodized aluminium pick guard regular split coil etc etc. Anyone have any experiences with these? Or could recommend a good P bass in my price range?
