    ok I been thinking about it and i will bye that fender. Nobody got anything bad to say about it
     
  5. I really like the Fender Zone-bass.. which looks sort of like the P-bass but without the ugly pickguard.

    very nice
     
  6. each thread needs an anti-fender reply :)
    so i guess its me this time

    there r a LOT of better basses out there, for the same price and cheaper. i won't name any, cos theres to many

    just my opinion, i don't like fender :)
    good luck

    *Si*

    Fenders are cool, but tell everyone what type of music you like to play and you will get more feedback.

    I still like the plain but distinctive tone of the P-Bass. Great main bass to get. Worth the money to get the American version. Sting thru. Well built.

    go for it,my friend has one.its really good.dont pay over 490 for it though...unless its sunburst.but im not sure if they even come in sunburst.its very fun!if you want to "try it out" try to find a squier deluxe.it feels like that,but much better!because its a fender.

    Congrats on the new bass. You can't go wrong with a Fender. Fender covers any style well.

    I surprisingly have never owned a fender bass.. I am sure I will eventually.. But I like them .. if you have a jazz bass with you, you can play really any style of music.. Just my opinion
     
  13. well done. good choice.
