  1. Has anyone compared the Fender 51 reissue P bass against the American Standard P Bass.
    I know there should be differences, but I am curious to know if the P bass sound is similar.
    I am contemplating buying a 51 re issue vs. a used P.
    I know that the 51 is Crafted in Japan, and as expeced the quality is superb.
