  1. First off Sir Mike....

    I`m asking this in your forum and not in "strings"
    since I am interested in your personal preferances and input.

    My bass...did I say "bass"? I mean the love of my life ....:D is a `98 MIA Fender P.She is in need of strings in a bad way but I am so confused as to the plethora of brands,makes,styles,etc....

    I do know I want roundwounds though(I have flats on another bass and like them but for me they are not the all purpose string I will use most).I am foremost concerned with a string that will amplify and/or accentuate the "P bass sound". I love this bass and love the sound,just want a set of strings that will be best suited to it.I am fairly new to bass(16 months) so play at my skill level....mainly into alt. rock,classic rock,pop 40,some(easier)motown/oldies.

    Sorry if this post is a bit long winded Mike.
