I played a PBass special today. Well, I found love. This will definitely be my next bass. I just don't want to wait until May but that's when I'll have the resources for a new bass. It's got a P and a J pickup, jazz neck, very nice finish and a funny looking gold pickguard. And it sounds a lot better than any other fender import I've tried. The P pickup has all the P sound you would want, and the J pickup adds very good high-mid colour. The J pickup by itself is a little noisy but has a nice sound. The bass is shielded. The decal is one of the nicer looking ones, not like the fat one I got on my MIM Fretless Jazz. And it plays great. I couldn't put it down for an hour, I thought it made me play very well. And it's only $730 Canadian (around $480). It's got the looks, the sound, and it's very comfortable. How can you go wrong for that kind of money? I can't wait till may! Or maybe I should get it for my birthday..
