  1. Well I have got some extra dough for Xmas late so what would YOU get next???

    keep in mind I have:
    An SX P/J fretless P Bass
    97 American Standard Jazz
    2008 MIM Jazz that I plan to drop an Audere into
  2. Ok, I posted for the Standard P-bass.

    IMO, The Standard is a great bass, and will need little to nothing to get her running.

    I'm currently working an SX P-bass fretless, and while it is a decent bass, and will be a lot of fun, the Fender is a better instrument.
  3. I mean a whole new bass to add to my stable
    not for any good reason just because I can and mostly because my wife said she didnt care!!!I have about $475 tops to blow
    Dont need any effects or amps since I have all that covered

    Squier CV 50's.

  5. you know I have been scoping out all my local guitar centers to play the Classic Vibe 50s but I can never find one. I see Vintage Modifieds but never the Classic Vibes. I definitely would like to play the CV before purchasing. I've played a few Vms and 1 out of 3 were actually nice. But most outside of an obvious setup felt cheap even compared to my SX.

    Im leaning towards either the MIM P bass or the CV 50s P Bass
    ever since I got my SX I forgot how fun a P bass can be:
    simple no nonsense and chunky

    It's what I learned on and it felt nice to be back in old shoes

    mim p bass or vm p bass, CVs are nice but not for me
  7. I just heard rumors that there will be new colors and a maple fingerboard option on 2009 MIMs..Anybody have details? I did a search but got vague results

    Exactly how much "extra dough" are we talking about? I might recommend something not on the poll.

    An MIA P bass deluxe if you have enough cash for it.
  10. extra dough means I got around 475 but I can save for something extra
    right now im leaning towards one of the new 2009 Mexi P Basses with maple board
  11. That would be a killer bass, as a Steve Harris Project bass.

    I would buy a 5 string bass if I were you, if not that, then maybe look for a used American P-bass?
    Idk, I think thats a good idea

    Maybe get something that isn't a Fender or Fender wanna-be. IMHO all you're doing is recreating what you already have.

    This is a great dilemma to have!

    Do you have a Peavey T-40 in your arsenal?
    If not, what about getting one of those? I know someone's selling a black/maple one here in the classifieds for $335. You'd even have enough $$ left over to ALSO grab an SX.
    My wife got me a nice fretted SX PJ for Christmas and it was $100 plus shipping.

    The peavey t 40 sounds awesome

    I completely forgot about Peavey. I'd also like to mention the Milleniums. Not the cheap ones that go for $300 new, but the American made ones with the MM/J pickup configuration. You can get one of those for around the same amount of cash you have. they're very good basses too.

    I'd get an SX LTD, which won't need any modifications.
