i'm sure others have dealt with it but it's killing me. picked up a minty 98 black p-bass off of ebay 1 1/2 years ago because i needed a good back up. so after having it for about a year, my main band broke up. i had some other projects but nothing really warranted having such a nice back up, especially one that never got played(used the bass maybe once). so i decided to sell it. sold it a little cheaper then i paid for it(because i'm an idiot), and purchased a mim p, a weight bench, and a surround sound. fast forward to last month, i'm in three bands, and one of them is in D standard. wish i would have kept that other american p so i had a awesome feeling/sounding/playing p for D standard, and one for E standard.
