    finally got the neck dive in control with a big strap and I have fallen in love. Its a MIA '99 with such a huge FAT sound. Its got really broken in RS 66 stings and it just rocks. I cant wait to see how it fits with the band :bassist:

    I have a MIM '03 but I'm not too fond of the thick neck and the string spacing. I'm going to check out a jazz and a few other brands to see if I can find a better fit.

    I like the look on your bass tho!

    Nice bass :)

    I too LOVE my P's both of them. If I could only have one bass, it would be a Precision.

    I might get flamed for this but I can't think of another bass that will cover "ANY" type of music like a P can. A P with Roto's is the classic rock n roll tone. You've heard it on countless tunes and it always delivers. Is the P a "perfect" bass for all types of music? Well no, but it will hang in there thumping away through any song you toss at it.

    Keep Low :bassist:

    Im actually in the middle of a jazz build and re-vamping my HWY1 P.

    take good care of her man and if you ever think of selling hit me up, that bass has alot of shows and good memories wore into the wood.

    For me there is no better instrument for sludge/doom/stoner metal, my favorite genres. Maybe a ric, but theyre definitely in a tie with one another

    You can always try lighter turners and make a perfect bass more perfect.

    That looks like an awesome bass; love the color! It's a p-bass, if it doesn't fit in with your band... try another amp. :bag::D

    I love all 3 of my P's!

    I just got my first P bass and am in heaven! never played one before and had no idea what I was missing. I got a great deal on this one as its a new 2006 Diamond Anniversary model that had never sold due to the inflated price. Plays like a dream and I cant put her down!

    Why didn't I own a P bass 20 years ago!!!

  17. That's the best color combo I've ever seen on a P-bass. Perfect.

    All the time spent playing a non Precision bass is wasted time
