Now have the itch to get a new 4 string bass but of course funds are limited. Looking to get something solid in the $400.00-$600.00 dollar range. Play mostly rock & blues so I am thinking of the Fender Standard MIM P Bass but checking the reviews has my head spinning around. Some say its great, others trash them. Even one review said the electronics are Chinese junk. Looking for honest opinions of those that have them. Do they last and how durable are they. Not fixed on Fender alone if there are other brands to consider for this playing style. Sad to say there are no good shops around that have them to try out so it would be mail order. Have had good luck with Sweetwater & Chicago Music Exchange so I would probably go with either one of them. Opinions really appreciated.
