For years I've longed for a 5 string p-bass and I even owned an American Deluxe, the one with the double coil pup at the bridge and active electronics. I never thought it had a real p-bass vibe. Today I found a new Fender American Professional Precision Bass V in scratch and dent section of Sweetwater. I ended up paying even less than they wanted and I'm pretty sure I can rub out the small scratches in the paint. I'm pumped.
