Played a full night with this new bass last night. This is my first single coil P bass. Genre is classic rock, new rock, party rock. The neck is a bit of a monster to me, being used to a Geddy jazz or the 1.60 P necks, but it wasn't uncomfortable. It played pretty smooth with a set of .45-100 semi-flats and was pick-friendly (I am probably 50/50 fingers/pick player.) Tone wise it is thick playing through a Markbass 1x12 combo with a bit of tweaking. This is my third Squier from the new VM/CV series. I also have the Dirnt 50's P and the Tele-P. I gig every weekend in bars. These Squiers are perfect for what I need them to do.
