    Ok, so most of us agree that the geddy jbass is one of the best bang for your buck j basses, since its got good looks, good neck and a good bridge, all for a very nice price. But is there a pbass that has the same kind of idea (having a lot of high quality stuff and yet still not costing a whole lot) ?

    The Mike Dirnt P-bass would seem to fill that bill. At a slightly higher price, you could look at the Skyline Glaub and Duck Dunn models.
     
  3. +1 Skyline Glaub

    # 2 Used MIA, and upgrade the pickups. (Beware of dead spots on G-String frets 5-8)

    Seconded on the MIA American Standard P basses. I have a 97 and it is excellent. Try them in person if you can, but I think that you will do OK with them. I know this: they aren't going to be selling for $550 for a whole lot longer.

  6. IMO the Skyline Glaub is the very best bang for your buck P-Bass.

    Hmm I'm think that if money was a major issue trying out the Highway 1 P-bass, some swear they're better than their more expensive older brothers.
