NBD 79P - WOW!!!

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Margus Alviste, Dec 19, 2013.

  1. Just got a 79 P and tried to record it using DGCF tuning. Wow, this beast plays and records amazingly well! Nothing comes close! I was completely a JB guy but now I'm sold to.... P?! :help:

    No pics - no 79 P
  3. Sry, the pics are in the other computer! I'll try to upload some soon. PS! It's a player's bass not for Fender Police Officers! :)

    a JB guy myself so how is it switching over to that bigger P bass neck?
  6. Well, I have a bunch of different basses, so for me it's not a problem to switch over to bigger or smaller necks. I also play 5-strings, so nothing too big here. :) And to be true, it's not as big as I thought. Quite comfortable. :)

    hahahsomething similar happened to me!

    Showed up to the recording session with a ric, a 72J, and a 78 P. I was at the booth, not visible to the sound guy. I tried the ric, the j, and finally the P. With the P, the sound guy was like "stop right there, that's the sound we want". I was also playing through a mic'd b15N.

  14. So please dear Fender Police do not take me to the jail, i got her with those "upgrades"! But I promise to restore her as soon as I'll get payed for my first gig! :)
  15. Love the burst/maple combo!
  16. Nice! I have more P-Basses than sense or talent, but one of my favorites is a '79 with many evil mods, wearing old Fender flats. What kind of strings are you using?

    Beautiful I love maple necks congrats.
  18. These are 50-110 Rotosounds in DGCF tuning. I'll try the flats when done with my recording session. Probably the heavy gauge because I started to like the DGCF tuning.
