    i`ve heard that the 65` to 73` p bass tone is one of the best p sounds that you can get.
    is this true?
     
  2. depends on what you like. '57 is a year highly regarded for its P basses, and some say the current american series basses are the best yet.
     
  3. I have a '73 frettless P and it has some beautiful tones.
     
  4. I Have a '73 fretted and it sounds amazing. in great shape too got flatwounds on it it's sweet

    My brand new AM P-Bass is about 7 hours old (for me that is), and it sounds great. And, it weighs next to nothing.
     
  6. I hear that most P-Basses have a P-bass tone to them, is this true?

    ;)

    (Note: Please, nobody answer this question)

    The 1970-73 P-bass is a great buy in the vintage world.
    Still plenty around, and can be found between
    $850-1200.
    I have a 71-fretted P-bass Sunburst-rosewood neck.
    72-fretless P-bass, white -fretless maple fingerboard.
    They sound great.
