    Decent little Squier P-bass I picked up on CL for $50!!

    I got it home, swapped out the normal pg for a wbw triple ply, and threw on some old knobs from a les paul copy I had.

    Pretty good sounding bass, actually.

    My first precision too!

    Nice score and nice job with the white-on-white look.

    My only question- is that a crack on the surface of the bass? And if it IS, I hope its only in the finish and not through the body.

    Yeah, I was pretty weary about that when I saw it. I checked it out and it looks to be a crack just in the surface. It stops right past the white coating..

    It's crazy how different this thing sounds when compared to my Jazz.

    Yeah, P-basses definitely sound different from Jazzes, thats for sure!

    The price suggests so:
    My friend good bass for your bucks... Even if quite cheap, and, you see, somewhat fragile in overall finishings, still a for real resounding alder body Precision bass. First one?! A good start!

    Enjoy NBD

    Great buy. How can you go wrong for $50?

    I like the white on white, but I'd really like to see Jazz knobs on it rather than the LP style.

    iJazz - Don't say you're surprised by that.

    Yeah, I'm not super happy with the knobs, but it didn't have any when I got it, and those were all I had.
    I'm thinking I may just get the classic dome knobs you generally see on P-basses
