I've long wanted to get a bass that can sound and feel like a good P-bass, but with a low B. This has been driving my GAS for too long, and I'm about ready to do something about it Here are the basses I've tried, and the ones I want to try ... any comments on any of them would be most welcome. I've tried: Mike Lull PJ5. This bass was incredibly built, but the 35" scale, large body-to-string rise distance, and narrow string spacing made it not "feel" like a P bass to me. It did sound really good. It was sooooo close, my hands just didn't agree with it. Zon Sonus 5/2. I know, you don't think this is a P bass, but the neck pickup is a Duncan split coil right in P-bass land. Real real close to being great, its just the graphite that kept it from being a home run as a 5-P. A great bass in its own right and very versitile. MTD 535. Another bass you wouldn't think of, but it also sports a split coil in the "middle" position (right in between where the two coils on my '78P are). This one does a "super modern P bass from hell" tone REALLY well. I love playing roger waters type P bass lines on this bass, it doesn't sound "like" and old P, but it has the right attitude. This is the only one I still have. I still want something with a more traditional sound than the MTD. I'm curious about: Fender American Deluxe 5 Precision: I've played and like the 4 string version a whole lot, and I was just down playing the 5 string jazz and it was pretty nice. I can't seem to find these in shops. This is my primary target at the moment. Its also nice to have a bass with "Fender" on the headstock ... makes people comfortable Old Yamaha TRB-5P. Only problem is that its a neck-through. Sadowsky PJ5. I've had (and loved) a Metro, so this seems an obvious choice. Obviously insanely expensive as well until Roger takes pity on my and adds P pickups to the Metro line. Warmoth or maybe Valenti (you out there Nino?). I don't see a P5 routing option on the website, but otherwise this is something I might consider. Drop in the Sadowsky pickups but leave it passive. Pick up another lakland skyline 5 and route it for a P pickup myself Any other ideas?
