Any suggestions of which bass would best combine both that classic P-bass depth and punch with some of that famed Stingray growl? I have tried the G&L L2500 and personally thought it to be the closest. I liked the Lakland feel allot but it's overall tone was far too refined and modern to be in the same category IMO. I also don't care at all for that Jazz bass tone. I am thinking bolt-on, passive and alder...? Am I right on this? I have been using my Alembic equipped Warwick 5 strings for years in my dub trio but really crave that punchy deep P-bass sound of when the tone control is rolled halfways down..love it. Kinda want a bit of that Stingray versatility and snarl on occassion as well. For the dub however, giant P-bass booty is definitely THE crucial missing element. Basses that I have jived with; Fender Amercian Vintage series...the '62 P The 1951 MIJ Sting (evil) P-bass sounded great. Fender P w/a Dimarzio hotrod PU sounded rich and full as well. I would LOVE a suggestion for any bass that would get me this classic P-tone but with some Stingray versatility in there.help!!
