I'm on the market for a p-bass, a real one. I've narrowed it down to either an american standard (which I would buy new for 1080$) or a used but mint condition american vintage reissue '57 for 950$. I've tried both and my impressions were these; the AS had a more comfortable neck (finish, thickness,...) and a great sound, and the AVRI sounded very vintage-y (which I love!) but the bass definitely needed a setup (high action, impossible to slap...) so it's hard to judge. The main reasons why I like that one is because of the vintage sound and the great deal I get (and also it looks damn hot). So I know it's all subjective, and that anyways whichever I choose I can't go wrong, but I need your advice on which one of these will perhaps be more versatile, a better idea on the long run (better built quality perhaps?). I love that the AS has a stronger graphite neck and the string-thru body bridge. Should I take the AVRI because of the amazing deal? Which one sits more comfortably in a mix (I play fingerstyle pop/funk). Anything I should know about these that makes one of them a better bass than the other overrall? thanks!
