How does the MIM Player Series compare to the MIM Classic Series P Basses?

    I've been away from the forum for a while, and had no idea about the MIM Player Series replaced the MIM Standards.

    Was wondering how these new Player Series compare to the previous MIM Standards and the higher end MIM Classic series, particularly Precisions. I have a Classic 50's lacquer P and absolutely LOVE that bass, and have had a couple of the non-lacquer versions that were equally as good. Of course the Classic 50's has a wider nut and a lacquer finish, hardshell case, but what are the other differences? Neck tint? What pickups are in the Player Series? What's the neck profile like compared to the old Standard models?

    Neck profile .
    Slim Modern C vs bassball neck.

    Which bass has a baseball neck? I'm guessing you're referring to the Classic 50's? I tqouldnt call it a baseball bat. Sure, the nut width is wide, but from to back it's pretty low volume.
  4. I have a 2015 MIM standard and just tried a new Player for the first time yesterday. The neck did not feel good to me. Seemed chunkier, so I'm also curious about this. I couldn't tell a difference in sound as I didn't have the MIM with me. New colors are beautiful, though.
