OK Folks. I have my first gig with the new band this Saturday 19th. It's Alt-Country type stuff. My choices: MIM standard jazz (Sunburst with tortoise guard and covers), MIM Preceision special with PJ (black with gold ano guard) 51 RI Precision sunburst with covers. they all sound great. I prefer the 51RI for tone. THe style of music doesn't require a lot of different sounds, so a one trick pony like the 51RI should be fine. (plus I think it looks cool) Right now I'm thinking 51RI main bass, PJ prec. as backup. anyone want to convince me otherwise?
