    I know I've seen a beautifull (archttop) Fender fretted bass with one p-pup, but I can't remember modelname ore where I've seen it but I think it was here on "Talkbassfoum".Anybody who have a clue?

    No
    Not the Coronado or Aerodyne
    The one I ment was a special model that looked a bit like a "archtop natural finished P bass"

    It has a flat top and a piezo in the bridge. The P pickup is a Lace Sensor, I believe, and sounds very powerful. The piezo adds tons of string noise and would probably sound nice with flats. You can blend the two p-ups.
