i see it a lot. Guy sees an affordable American bass from the 70s that’s dinged up a bit and buys it. Then he claims how it’s incredible and has a certain “mojo”. Well I’m not buying what you’re selling. You paid at least what a new P Bass would go for and got a 40+ yr old bass that sounds like a poopy 70s P. That’s it. I I’ve a 2016 P that I consider the best sounding P ever. Not that it’s any different from the million others produced that year...they sound great. The build is WAY better in the new stuff...everything about the modern p trumps the 70s crap. I remember in the 90s how the 60s basses were so great and you couldn’t give away a 70s Bass. They were garbage. Now since an affordable 60s Bass is hard to come by were to pretend the 70s now are great? Nope not buying that. Okay..there are some decent 70s but they lose every time to a modern p imo. The 60s basses probably do merit more of their reputation but let’s not immortalize the 70s P. Maybe the modern reissues. I know Ed F. The bass whisperer recently been touting the 70s bad because he bought one but he’s part of the hype now. There’s no mojo...it’s bs.
