Hey TB, Would like to share with you my first P bass. Saw it advertised on eBay last night and it was in my local town. I've been wanting a P bass since forever so this seemed like fate! It's an 2004/5 American Standard Black on Black with Maple neck and it is toasting! It's got brand new Roto rounds on, which feel weird when you're used to playing with flats - zinging and clear as crystals, lovely tone and sound great when playing on your own but I'm a flats kinda guy. Now when it come to flats I normally recommend GHS Precision Flats as my first choice of string but as they are on my Jazz i'm feeling tempted to go towards a set of LaBella's. I have a heavy gauge set but the tension was too high for my liking. The tension on my Jazz with 45/105 GHS P flats is perfect, so any set around that tension would be great. Any recommendations? So happy with the purchase and cannot wait to take it to practise tomorrow night. And even more exited to get some flats on. Hopefully by tomorrow I will realise why this bass has been the industry standard for so long. Dying to know what it sounds like in the mix! Attached: Picture of the bass. The 3 maple Musketeers (yes i like maple necksdrool). And I picture of my cat in my new basses case because why not! .
