Hi guys... Looking for some input. I have an American Deluxe P (my back up bass) that I like but I find it lacks that vintage thump... It's way more versatile then any P bass I've encountered but I feel I lacks the P tone...(which is what I'm after, I have a 4003 so the other end of the spectrum is covered) I got a trade offer for an all original, beat up (which doesn't bother me at all... Actually I prefer it) 1978 Fender P Bass. Are these hit and miss or are they solid basses that give that nice vintage P tone... He lives 3 hours away but he will be in town for a couple of days... I haven't tried it yet so obviously that's something I need to do... But I don't want to waste my time if what I've got will blow it away... My question is... What's the general feel here on TB on late 70s Fenders and do they still give that classic thump and are they worth having... Moreover would you trade an American Deluxe if you were in my position...? Thanks guys!
