    It never hurts to have a P-bass, and a 5 string, and a 6 string, and a J-bass, and etc....

    The P seems the most value adding addition to your current collection IMO. Never hurts to have one as well.

    first try one out. maybe you won't like the sound of the simple P bass after playing on only two pickup basses. I would definitely go for a P bass, even though i play a two pickup bass mostly. But their sound is soooo awesome :D
    go with one of these:
    Lakland Skyline Duck Dunn - they have a jazz style neck
    Lakalnd Skyline Bob Glaub - wider neck, buy you are probably use to those after playing 5,6 string basses
    there are a lot of Fender p basses but for that money you can only get a MIM or MIJ, and Laklands are built better than those... imo...

    Actually, I changed my mind! Get a 5 string P, it does the ''back to bassics'' thing + a low B :). Look at Laklands, Sandbergs, Fenders (duh) and Laklands ;). And Laklands.

    P bass would make the most impact on your lineup. Did anyone mention checking out Lakland? :D

    Sandberg as well, MM/P sounds @.@

    I like the new Fender Precision 5ers with the single split pickup myself. Not enough to trade one of my Warwicks for one mind you...

    I agree. There just was an American P 5 string at Sam Ash in the price range that gave me severe GAS. I went back to get it but: Ya snooze, ya lose!

    Also at Sam Ash are Laklands also filling my GAS tank. Those are VERY fine basses.

    RULE: you can never own too many basses.

  11. P-Bass. You have the Jazz V, the 6-string... Get a P and you'll be set for pretty much any gig.

  13. every one needs a P bass :)
  14. Nice Precision or Jazz should sort you out...

    Actually - scratch that, get a Jaguar bass quickly before they stop making them!!! (its a nice jazz, then flip the series/parallel switch and the J pickup gives a nice precision sound)

    yeah i changed my mid up to. Get a 5 string Lakland P bass :D
    but it's a little bit hard to get the new skyline 5 string P basses, because they are limited edition. And believe me, that Lakland's necks are one of the most comfortable necks ever!
