    Mars Cowling-Pat Travers Band-just listen to any early Travers. Outstanding bass lines.

    John Deacon-Queen-oustanding bass lines and smooth as a criminal.

    I have many more but these guys helped shape my playing........next

    1. Paul Jackson from his Headhunters days. I don't think he plays P's now but there is no doubt that's what it is on that first Head Hunters recording.

    +1 for Duck.
    And that Jamerson guy was pretty great, too.

    I have to say Deacon John is my favorite of the Precision guys, overall.

    I like Jeff Berlin's earlier modded Precision playing. I'm mentioning him more for name than anything. His Dean sounds even cooler, which is odd.

    The "complete" Precision man musta been Duck Dunn, though. The pipe, the stone simple lines...he was born for the Fender.
