    I voted for the 52 P-bass. If the 62 Jazz was another color, I would have went for it. The Lake placid blue turns green when the lacquer yellows.
     
  4. I already have a cherry EB-O (1970), and my 96 MIA Jazz V fills my jazz requirements for now - I still want at least one P. And I am partial to blondes - so I voted for the 52 blonde P!

  8. Pull my finger!.....weeeeee! whoops! gotta change me shorts now!!....... :eek: :D :eek: I voted for the 63 L Jazz, but I wouldn't turn my nose up to 52 P either!! Why are you asking? what condition are these basses in? why only these basses? I want more choices......and they all have to be in super mint condition too!!! m'kay!
     
  9. I voted for the 52 P bass, but was torn between that and the 63 jazz. If the J bass was a different color, I may have went with that.

    voted Jazz, never was a big P-bass fan
     
  11. i'll
    always
    choose a j over a p

    it's the difference between that 'rubber band' p-bass sound verses the cool j-bass tone, which has much more character imho.

    (ok, precision faithfuls, proceed with kicking my a** now)





    :D
     
  12. make that precision a 57 instead of 75 and i'm on it. otherwise the jazz.
     
  13. Although the '52 P-bass is a great piece of history, I would choose the Jazz. Lake Placid faded to strange green looks great!
     
  14. The Jazz. I had a blonde on blonde '75 P-Bass that was one of the worst P-Basses ever made. I've told the story here a couple of times, so I won't repeat it again - unless you really want to hear it! :D

    This shattering bass blow during my formative years is what sent me searching the Earth for makers other than Fender. (Is anyone crying yet?:( )

    Make the Gibson a long sacle EB-3 and then we'll talk again.

  17. How much for the EB-O?
    I have $38.00 can.

    Deal???

    Good!

    I'll PM my address now!
     
  18. A '57 P, white, red pickguard is my choice for a vintage bass.
