I have recently returned to playing bass with some friends after a several decade layoff. Its more fun than ever, but I need to get some of my own gear. I have played a number of guitars at various stores and still like the P-bass best. My question is this: back in my day (the 70's) everyone wanted pre-CBC guitars because the CBS Fenders were perceived to be lower in quality. I have played some 70's basses and they have varied considerably. Some I really liked, some not so much. I have also played brand new USA Standard basses and have found some that I really liked as well. Does anyone have an opinion about the 70's basses vs. the current basses? Is it worth a (pretty small) premium to get a 70's P-bass? Thanks in advance for all the help!
