    I've never done a NBD thread before, but I'm REALLY excited about this bass. It arrived a little earlier this afternoon and I've had it out all day. I got a pretty good deal online and from about 2-3 feet, the thing looks new. I was expending this bass to be heavier, but it comes in around 8.7 lbs. I know Fender did some upgrades for 2009+ (series say this is a 2008), but I have to say, I'm pretty happy with this bass.

    Edit: added some pics

    Greetings for the North,

    Congrats. You should have the same 'upgrades' on your 2008 P5 as are on the 2009. They are awesome. Enjoy it. I'm still enjoying mine ;-)

    They're very interesting in that try as they might, Fender (and everyone else) has a hard time transferring a 4-string Jazz to an identical sounding 5-string version, yet the bass you bought (and my Squier VM P5) are right out of the box very much simply a 5-string Precision Bass. Spooky. Eerily identical to a 4-string P.

    These are great basses right out of the box, and hope you enjoy yours as much as I have mine.
