    Well after bills and bills this past week since I got the money. I went by a local shop and walked out the door after laying down 250 with thie gorgeous P-bass. I've already got alot of plans for it. Mike Hererra's 1975 Sunburst/Rosewood/Tortoise Shell P-bass is what inspired me to get this. I already ordered a brown tort pickguard that will hopefully arrive before first practice. And a Basslines QPB-3 is not to far down the road. Leo Quan Badass II maybe, and perhaps a Raven Labs PBR-1. But before I get over my head. I'm just going to enjoy it.

    Once I got her home, cut the strings, polished her up, slapped on some Ernie Balls ( I couldnt fit the G string, so sadly I had to go with this old dead, cheap string I've had for about two years, set the action, and put on some chrome knobs.

    I love my MIM P Bass...as much as any of the others...

    If you're going for truly vintage P Bass tone, I've heard some players using a Lindy Fralin and it sounded wonderful!!!

    I put a DiMarzio Will Power middle in mine and it will blow your head off...I'm finding that I like the stock bridge just fine (I did have a B/A II on it for a while).

    Get a brown tort guard on there IMMEDIATLEY!!!!!!! The white looks real tacky IMO. Get some ashtrays, and then it'll be one hot bass.
