Regardless of comments in other threads, I am debating a P bass for my 2nd/backup bass. My main bass is an active 5 string with Bartolini electronics. I generally like a more "modern" tone. I use a Genz Benz Shuttle 3.0 combo amp and basically go bass to amp - with a tuner and compressor between. I am looking to trade an Ibanez SR300F that I don't use to something I will. I usually don't lean to Fender, 4 string, passive or P basses. But, as I look for a 2nd, I think it should be something different from my main bass, but still able to "fill in" if needed and provide another tone option if wanted. I play in church (love the active 5 there) and in a jazz trio - where the passive P would also work - and a cover band. I am also looking at getting an R&B/Soul horn band going in the future for which a P bass would be perfect. Any thoughts?
