    Screw the search function, I know this comes up every few weeks. I just want to say that I'm feeling some big time P bass love tonight. That is all.

    There were two tonight just asking to be played(one '51 style) but I ended up jamming on a BTB 6 string. Equally awesome but I want a P so bad sometimes...

    I'm playing a '04 American Standard sporting flats. It has the series/parallel switch that usually sucks but I added a Stellartone tone control and a Redeemer preamp. With the S-1 switch and Stellartone, there are some really sweet tones available. Not that the default setting is in any way bad.

    I played the 5 string today. I considered selling my L2500 to buy it. I love P's more than I thought.

    I have a Squire P-bass. About three weeks ago I took an old set of Fender flats that were set aside and re-strung them on my Squire. All I can say is "OH, YEAH!!"

    Does my Squire count?

    I just shoved 2 playing cards under my neck in the neck joint, and my action is RIDICULOUS. I fell in lover all over again.
  12. Absolutely! A P is a P is a P. Nothing says "bass" quite like a Precision Bass. A P-Bass says, "Yeah, I'm a badass! No fancy gear for this boy! I come in, lay it down, and get out!". ;)

    Nothing is a P but a P.

    I bet that Green Squier would look real nice with a black pearl pickguard.

    This is kind of goofy, but I'll play too. :) I had my '57AVRI at band practice the other day, I've already gigged with it, but we don't practice much. My previous American Standard was stolen, and this one I'd bought used, and it still has the old round wounds on it that the previous owner used. I said to the fellas "I know you guys can't tell any difference, but I have to say I am loving the sound of this bass!" The acoustic guitar player/singer said "well, you know, I was actually going to say something after our last gig, I have to agree, that one sounds great." I almost fell over...

    It is very growly, I don't know how else to describe it. The tone is all P bass, but there is an edge to the tone that I really like. Maybe it's the ash body (which I have no experience with) or maybe it's the round wound strings, but this thing has BAWLS!

    Pics from the seller:

    Here's one of me playing at a party back in October.

  19. All I can say is, you lot are easily pleased...
  20. Even if that's true (and I don't necessarily agree with that), so what? What pleases us, pleases us. Are you gonna tell us we are wrong for loving Precision basses? How arrogant is that?
