I'm a guitar player who records my own backing (bass & drum) tracks. My '98 MIM Fender P-bass just isnt cutting it for recording. I record direct into my mixer/soundcard through a J-Station. I'm wondering what some of your opinions are as far as going with active pickup equiped bass for my situation. I'm interested in the Fender P-bass Lyte, the active P&J pickup configs appeal to me and the slimmer neck is nice too. I'm also considering a Jazz bass (especially if there is an active one with P&J pickup configs.) Even though they both are Fender I'm open to others like DeArmond (Pilot series), Tobias (Toby Pro-4), and others.. Anyone got any ideas? Thanks!
