    To those who have never owned a Fender bass, if you were to buy one which one would you get ? If I ever got a Fender I would have to go with a Pink Paisley Telecaster Bass.

    Tele basses are real cool and you can't go wrong with a good j bass
     
  3. Let your ears and hands tell you, can't go wrong w/either the P or J, though my personal preference is the P.
     
  4. The more practical side of my personality would probably want the Deluxe P Bass Special, but I'd probably end up with the Road Worn 50's P, or lacking that, the Highway 1 P.
     
  5. i'd get an early 70's P bass. if it had to be new, probably that MIM 50's P

    :cool:

    The puzzle with fenders are no one fender is it.
    You need a Jazz Bass, you need a P-Bass.
    A Tele-style bass is great, ever the new Jaguar is sweet.
    There all so different, one is not enough.
    I play a Jazz, and a P-bass all the time.
    And gas for a mid-50's style P-Bass.
    An early 70's fretless P-bass would also be nice?
    This is why so many fender owners, own many fenders.
     
  7. +1, Fenders are like potato chips.......;)

    and +1 on the early 70s fretless PBass, that's what I use w/chrome flats, very versatile, but would like a good J w/frets, too.

    I could live with a white P bass with a tort pickguard. I know, how boring!

    I've never owned a Fender, but I've ALWAYS wanted an early 60's P with a maple board. I'll have one someday, but I've been waiting for the right one (ie, not a collector's model).
     
  10. if i could only have one.. a jazz.. white with black pick guard
     
  11. 1978 Precision, burst...go back and get the one I didn't choose then.

    This year's crop is pretty good, by many reports.

    I would buy new. Around twelve hundred dollars. Don't have it? Save up.

    I do believe you will enjoy. J or P? Yeah...
     
  15. Deluxe Jazz V special with the sunburst body dark tort pickgaurd and rosewood fretboard

    the American standard 5-string P. Without going into detail, it's just the most appealing fender to me tonally.

    A maple P-Bass, probably. Not bound to happen any time soon though.
    There are too many details I don't like about Fenders.
     
  18. Bought a J bass. (50th year Ann version).

    Sold it.

    Yucky.
