So after approx. a year of GASsing hard for a P Bass (and some J basses too) I have finally gotten two milestones in bass buying to score an ultimate bass for me. From a local TBer bassman_al I got my very first Precision bass, first American made bass, and first passive bass. A 2003 Fender American Standard Precision Bass with the S-1 switch. It sounds great, exactly how you'd expect a P bass to properly sound, especially with my new favorite type of strings (bright flats). The neck and weight is pretty much perfect to my touch and the finish is great (I can't wait to wear it down from years and years of playing). This thing is a thumper with that classic P sound that one can feel rather than just hear. I know I know, no pics no bass...Well here's a quick cell picture for now, I'll take proper photos when I have the time and better light.
