MIM P-bass specs

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Microbass, Dec 2, 2002.

  1. I've trying to find a complete list of the specs on a Fender MIM P-bass, as all I know is that it's

    Stock Bridge/hardware (chrome in my case)
    Rosewood fingerboard
    Alder body
    Maple neck

    What kinda nut are on these?

    What's your opinion on the preamp? POts worth it, etc?

    If I've missed anything, please-o-please tell and what you know !!! :D

    AND! Most importantly they should come in a translucient white, wiith purple tortoise shell scratchplate?!!!

    If they don't, I'm just gunna lie down and die :D :rolleyes:

    Thanks all!

    The vital stats you are looking for should be here.

    You would probably have to have the purple tortoise shell pickguard custom-made.
  3. That's what I looked at earlier, but I guess the specs will be fine!

    Thanks man!

    Oh, and there's no preamp -- just a single P pickup wired to a volume and tone pot. But it's great P sound, all the way. I'd pick one up if they had a five string version.

    The only thing I don't like about my MIM is the bridge. The saddles move easily. You can pull on a string and drag the saddle to the left or right.

    And they should also come with a maple fretboard. :D
  6. Spend $20 and get a Gotoh 201 bridge. That saddle moving problem is gone. And the Gotoh is really shiny. :D
  7. I have a mexican bridge on my current bass, and I can see that you can move the strings, but not very easly. YOu need someone with a hard picking technique, like me :D

    I was thinking of going Bad Ass, but of course this would eb a later investment.

    By preamp, I meant are the pots good? Does the tone give a good shaping...

    Thanks all!!! :D
