New P-bass!

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Nomadic Herder, Oct 21, 2001.

  1. Well I got my new MIM P-bass today and it's wonderful. I strung it up with some Rotosounds and put a shiney silver strap on it. It's Midnight Wine. And for everyone's information...the 2001 P-basses have metal knobs finally. This one was so new, noone had even touched it. It was still in the original factory boxes. :)
  2. WOW! nice pick man!

    wait 'till you get some flats on it.
  4. Flatwounds? Why on earth would I wish to that? No offense to flat users. I just like the clear bright ringing sound of rounds. And I LOVE the way they chew up my fingers and frets. :rolleyes: :p

    then why did you get a p-bass? No thump thump from p-bass? damm
  6. Um...I want to be unique? :rolleyes:
  7. Why does everyone think you have to have flats on a P?!?!?!? Rounds on a P produces one of the best rock sounds for bass.

    Flats and P basses go together like bacon and eggs. TI flats won't leave you with that dull feeling.

    Of course you may prefer ham and eggs.

    That's OK too! :cool:

    Midnight Wine is a great color.

    For me, i like to put smooth, thumpy strings on a smooth, thumpy bass, and bright, zingy strings on a bright. zingy instrument.

    I prefer round. Flat are too dull for me. I like the calluses on my fingers, too. :)
