    Decided to fork out on a new bass as I grew out of my old RBX270. Which is still a great guitar. I may get it de-fretted.

    But my new baby! Is great, it has all the tones I could want. PJ config, J pickup is a TAD weak but thats fixed with some setting changes on the EQ.

    Great Guitar.

    Body: Alder, (Precision Bass Body)

    Neck: Maple Jazz Bass Neck (Satin Polyurethane Finish)

    Fingerboard: Rosewood

    Pickups: 1 Standard Alnico Split Single-Coil Precision Bass Pickup (Mid),
    1 Dual-Coil Ceramic Noiseless™ Jazz Bass Pickup with Nickel Plated Pole Pieces (Bridge)

    Bridge: American Vintage Precision Bass


    I really love the tone I can get out of it, really nice and punchy, whilst getting a nice smooth tone if I want. A set of DR Hi-Beams should give it more life also =D.
  2. Nice bass. I was thinking of getting one myself. I like them in red or blue.

    I have never seen that pickguard color before and I think it looks rockin' on black. Congrats on your new p bass.

    I love it, the J pickup just add's enough growl when you blend with the P to make a really winning combo.

    Its very nice for Jazz situations as well which ive used it in. It really cuts through everyone, and I can hear myself much better.

    Apart from the tiniest, TINEST chip on the fretboard at the 19th fret, for a mexican bass, this thing is like a rock and everything is just really stable on it, especially the tuners.

    Another thing that helps this bass, is all parts are American its just built in Mexico.
