    I used to have one, and thought it was a good bass. I wouldn't have sold it except a friend of mine really wanted to buy it, so I gave in. It had a lightweight basswood body, a narrow, Jazz style neck, and P/J pickups with active EQ. It also had a nice bridge, not the cheap bent metal ones Fender usually puts on their basses. My only complaint about it was the pickups weren't warm enough for my taste. I replaced them with Bartolinis, and it sounded great. The P-Lytes were made in Japan, and were pretty good basses for the price range.
