I was thinking about buying another P, possibly MIA Fender, maybe Skyline Glaub. Anyway, based solely on aesthetics, I think the ash/maple combo looks the best. But what does a P with ash/maple sound like? Is it drastically different from the traditional, alder/rosewood setup? really bright? snappy, even? the mids and highs have to be different... Also just kind of wondering why Fender has changed the 'standard' in their basses over the years - such as during the 70s, ash/maple P and J basses became the standard as opposed to the alder/rosewood basses of the 60s. In the 50s I think it was ash/maple too? Just wondering what the tonal differences are. I'll probably put flatwounds on it if I get it so... perhaps it wouldn't matter that much?
