I recently sold my Marcus Miller Jazz for a new Fender '57 P bass from Japan. I love this bass. It has the look that I love and the tone that I expect to hear when I hear a bass. Maybe in the future I put on some rounds and put SD quarter pounds in but for now I'm really diggin it. The only thing is that the MM was so much heavier and I really miss the feel of the heavier bass. I think the neck felt different too. Not more solid but stonger and more comanding. Sounds crazy, right? But I do like the thickness of the P bass though.
