So I currently have a 2012 Fender American Standard P bass and an Ibanez HR Geiger special edition bass. I read the reviews on here and broke down and bought a Fender Japan Aerodyne PJ bass in dolphin gray. I am loving it. Thank you guys for all the reviews and opinions. Now I am moving on to strings. I have D'Addario flatwound Chromes on my Ibanez and installed Fender nylon tapewounds on my aerodyne, which black strings look awesome on this bass. I researched strings for my P bass but there are so many biased opinions. I finally broke down and bought about five packs of strings. LOL. I learned that to me and my bandmates D'Addario half rounds sound more dead than the flat wounds. I pulled them off and threw them in the garbage. For now I have those Dean Markley cold treated strings. I am really liking the nylon tapewounds though and might end up installing them on the P bass as well even though I like different sounds on my basses.
