    Like most of you, I'll be sitting in front of my TV on Saturday, lapping up every detail of the royal wedding, and dutifully playing along on my practice rig.

    Question is: P or J? Which bass is more suitable for the occasion?

    Please, no anti-royalist rants. Just some help in selecting the right tool for the job.

    Shouldn't it be something British? ACG? Wal? Hayman? Shergold?

    You're quite right! I've got such advanced Merkle Fever that I wasn't thinking clearly when I made the thread.

    Incidentally, this is what I will be wearing for the occasion.
    Since I'm not leaving the house, I'll save a few quid by foregoing the trouser rental.

    A Burns Sonic seems to fit the bill; and will compliment your outfit quite nicely....

    The Merkle Fever drove my temperature so high that I've been hospitalized for observation.

    But not to worry, Doc assures me I will be home by tomorrow for the nuptials.

    In the meantime, I'm still posting from my hospital room, so keep the votes coming.

    The British have a saying: "Mind your P's and Q's". From this we can deduce that a J is wholly innappropriate. But a P bass with a Q tuner pickup - yeah, that's it.
