Am I nuts? Long time j bass guy, with GAS (and budget 1,000-2,000) for solid P-bass. I’ve always gotten basses based on playability, not looks. I’m in the don’t give too hoots about vintage/ road worn biases. But now I really want a bass based on looks. What the hell? So I want black with tortoise shell pick guard,and a darker neck/fingerboard. I’ve been reading thru the posts here, and am confused. Advice appreciated. I’ve just started looking. Tried a roadworn jazz at a shop and really liked it. Looks like they are not offered in black.Not worth refinishing either. Guess it doesn’t have to be a Fender, or new for that matter. So are my best options the “professional “ line from Fender. Perhaps the other builders mentioned on Talkbass? (Nash guitars looked nice) Is there a comparable p bass to the roadworn line that comes in black? Or should I quit being a whiny little bitch, try some local P basses, and buy the one I like best and to hell with the looks? Am I nuts? (oh by the way, I really want the thumbrest on the E stringside, a hip shot on the E string, and light weight) Thanks !!!
