...but I snatched up a second Fender Pbass A/E. This one has the OEM electronics, and I think it sounds great. It provides excellent isolation and blending capability between the piezo and P-bass style pickups, much like my A/E an upgraded piezo and Bart preamp. The OEM piezo sounded a little clankier to me, but that does not put me off - I love clank from a bass! Also the burst has I nice set of roundwounds on it, which would give it a clankier sound than the tapewounds on my natural A/E. Regardless, the tone blending capability of the A/E lets you take the clank out if that's not your bag. This is a wonderful, lightweight, versatile bass.
