I wasn’t even looking for a new P bass but saw this was up for sale in the local classifieds and couldn’t resist. Came strung with TI flats, too! She sounds as good as she looks. Can’t wait to gig her next weekend! Also, need a name.

  6. Hahha thanks! I dunno about the name. So far, I have an Autumn, Jasmine Brown, Betty White, Virginia Rose, Minnie Pearl, Irene, Lucy Sue, Amber, Rasputia Lattimore, Angel, Gramps, and Chief. I’m stuck on a name for this one.

  9. I won’t. I want it to have more of a traditional name. My late grandmother’s name was Hattie. For some reason that is sticking with me.

    Split the difference. Leave the bridge cover on since it stays out of the way and take the pickup cover off since it gets in the way.
    Beautiful bass, by the way. I was admiring it in the classifieds.

    Awesome color! Can't ever go wrong with a P.

  15. I was admiring it, too! Never thought I’d end up with it. I realized Jon only lived about an hour from me. Which made me want it even more. But, being recently divorced and trying to sell my house, funds weren’t there. I sent it to my new girlfriend and she fell in love with it too. She texted me back and said “we’re going to the bank Saturday, I have enough in savings.” She’s a keeper!
