    Finally picked myself up a bass. Black Fender MIM P-Bass, pics will come when I find the USB cable for my camera. Got it on the 3rd played for like 5 hours straight, life is good.

    Working on learning "No Quarter"

    Happy New Year! Sounds like you have taken a up a nice new habbit. I've been playing since 1975 and I still enjoy it! :bassist:

    Hmmm.... nope. Can't do that. Jonesy played a Jazz, and later an Alembic. You can't play "No Quarter" on a P. Gotta sell it.


    Just kidding. Welcome to TB.

    Wow, that's a great first bass dude!

    I started off on Ibanez basses and dealt with extreme hand pain due to their thin/shallow necks. I went through some goofy high-falutin' basses before I fell in love with the simplicity and tone of the almighty P-bass. My hand pain went away too thanks to the P's wider, chunkier neck (I can cup it my hand easier).

    Welcome to the brotherhood of the P :D . Maybe you'll find another style bass to your liking though. May I also suggest that if you ever decide to give flatwound strings (great combo with P) a try that you give Thomastik-Infeld jazz flats a shot. A little expensive but you don't change 'em for years so it's more cost effective than rounds (what probably came with your MIM P).
