I'm thinking of buying a good ol' P-bass to add to my collection ( ahem.. ). I want to A/B the " standard " P-bass with the " American " P-bass. Now about the financial issue.. the Standard Precision bass costs about 550 euro ( US $ 700 ). The American precision bass costs about 1100 euro ( US $ 1400 ). What are the exact differences between them, apart from the thru-body option on the american one ? What is the difference soundwise ?
