    That sounds like a good bass, eh? ;)
     
  4. Is that the new MIM Classic version? They sure look great, I hope they sound and play the part as well...

    Would be nice to get even close to the MIA Vintage '57 at that price :)

    They look pretty cool, but they have the old style neck with the 1.75 nut width. A neck that wide makes me quiver in fear...

    :cool:
    Played one 2-weeks ago.
    Nice well made.
    Big p-neck. classic percision sound.
    For around $570.00 good buy.

    I have a Classic '50s P-Bass, and I'm very happy with it. The 1.75" nut width sounds big, but the neck feels comfy in my hands. Best of all, it delivers that classic P-Bass tone. :bassist:

    Is it a 'thick' neck too or just kinda wide?

    No, it isn't thick or chunky. It's very similar to the US '57 RI (if that helps?).
