Fixed it for you.
I've been on this simplicity kick lately and what's more simple than a P? Gosh, I love mine!
A P-Bass sits in the mix 'right' and also sits 'right' on my body...

Much love of the P bass here. Rather than just post my usual pics here's link to another P bass thread where I have rolled out my very beat up 63 http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showpost.php?p=9977940&postcount=126
I've been drooling over that exact bass for the last month or so. I'm considering selling my SR4 to get one.
I like them "complicated style" P pup basses. With their active 2-3 band eq's. Etc. And perhaps neck and bridge position P pups. Doesnt need to be quite as overboard as this one. But still tons of P love oozing from it. LMAO. O them simple simple P basses can be wonderful. But still..... Lol.

78P DD Chromes.
I feel it every day man!
I have an (actual size) set of P pickups tattooed on my forearm. So, yes, I am totally into jazz basses.
I'm a big fan of Jazz basses, but in my power trio, a P bass just works better! I've got a Fernandes P copy and love it. About to upgrade the pickup, bridge, tuners, and pickguard.
Plenty of love for my P-Bass!
I still remember when I showed up for band rehearsal with my fiesta red Classic '50s P with TI Jazz Flats and a Quarter Pound. We ran down a song, and the whole damn band turned around and said "That's IT!" They actually sent me home to fetch it when I showed up with a fretless Jazz bass at a gig one time.
A couple of years after that band broke up, I ran into the drummer at a cafe on Sunday morning where he and his wife were having breakfast. We chatted about his recent move as the girl's basketball coach from one of the local rural school districts to another in the area when he spontaneously said, "I don't usually pay all that much attention to how the bass sounds [!] but that orange bass was special."
Now I have four: my Numero Uno is an AV '57 with the requisite TI Jazz Flats; next up is a Classic '51 RI with a Quarter Pound and the TIs; wouldn't ya know, a natural ash with an unlined fretless maple board; and the fiesta red one, which is waiting on its new owner to come up with the cash.
Along the way, I went from an Ampeg B100R to a Mesa/Boogie Walkabout Scout (that I sold my Les Paul gold top to fund) and life couldn't be better.
Good-bye, all them other basses. Hello, Mr P!
Another P-bass lovin' thread? Well, it wouldn't be right if I didn't jump in here and share my love for them, too!
Just picked up a used '02 (to go with my used '94) and now have one with flats and one with rounds. I alternate between them about every half hour, and my favorite one is the one I'm playing at that moment. They're both set up to my liking, and both are downright awesome. A passive pickup and a tone knob...it just works for me.
