<font color=chrome>I was playin bass with the king of the surf guitar (yeah, DD) in 60-62. Had a 57 P bass. Period. Just made one style of P bass in them days, and it was called a P Bass! So, now I've dusted off the memories, and have decided to get a bass. Is a P Bass still the bada$$ it was 50 years ago, or could someone please recommend (with a bit of reasoning) a better selection. I like to play blues, jazz, some BOB seeger or james burton or james taylor or bonnie raitt kinda rock. I used to love that old P bass, and just don't think Leo (Fender) would dig the zillion models out now...So, kind reader, make my life simple. You recommend something, I will research it, and if it beats the (reissue) P Bass (American.....jeez) then I would take it for a test drive. Thanks for helping an old geezer rocker-jazzer. old age and treachery will overcome youth and skill every time!
