I don't know what it is exactly but I don't like my new bass. I need to change strings or something. I ordered a 57 p bass from Ishibashi last month and I'm having a hard time liking it. I loved it for the honymoon period but there is something I don't like about it. I sold a Marcus Miller for it and I also have an Aerodyne. I took the flats off the Aerodyne and put them on the P bass but soon after I lost intrest in it. I started to think that Maybe Id like the '70 bass. It was finished natural Ash. Y'know the Marcus was Ash finished natural. Now I'm thinking its the neck. You know. A p neck. Its my first and I thought I'd like it so much. OH well. I suppose next year Ill be looking for a new one.
