    Currently I am using my friends Squier Affinity P-bass, and have been for some time now. I started looking into Music Man's because I felt that I needed some more tone shaping abilities with my bass. However I jammed with a couple of friends of mine and it sounded perfect, sat right in the mix and got the tone I wanted with it. Even with my little 75 watts 1x10 combo it managed to fill the room without losing tone. It seems every time I doubt the P-bass it proves to be the bass that I really need. Anyone else thought that they needed to upgrade to a premium, on board pre-amp, super amazing hand crafted bass when all they really needed was a affordable, passive one?
     
  2. Yes, several times. Welcome to the club.
     
  3. I feel that way every time I pick up my P and play it. :D

    Nice! P basses are great, that single pickup is a wondrous thing. If that's the sound that you like, the only "upgrade" would be in terms of construction and playability. Maybe a Lakland Bob Glaub would be the ultimate bass for you!
     
  7. It's funny how they never really caught on! :D
