Hey ya'll, I'm new to the forum, and could use some assistance in my decision making. Earlier this month I recorded bass tracks for a Christmas EP, twas a good time. I used three different basses for no particular reason, other than they were available to use, it was awesome hearing such dramatic differences between them. I used my Ernie Ball MM Stingray, a five or six year old Lakland, and a '77 (I'm pretty sure) Fender Precision. It was AMAZING how much better the Fender sounded than the other two, so much so that I've decided to look into purchasing a vintage Fender P-bass myself. So I need some opinions... What years should I look into? What have you used/do you use currently? I loved the sound of the '77 P-Bass I recorded with...are there P's made in any other years that any of you really love? Any input would be appreciated, thanks all!
