Every freaking time i go into guitar center, there is this black on black MIM Fender P bass with what appears to be a quater pounder basslines pup. Like i see it there staring at me. Yet i pick up the transparent green ibanez btb570fm next to it every time. I always watch these videos on youtube and hear people playing these pbasses and im just like.....sjhfdashdfklhd i need that sound! But i feel like buying a pbass is like setteling. To me, it's a old man bass. But they always sound good, Untill i play one. I keep eyeballing a American Special Fender. The black on red with a maple fretboard. Looks amazing. Sounds horrible. Maybe it's me just not knowing how to eq a pbass right. My rig is a fender tbp-1 into a crown xls1500. no pedals. and my cabs very between a 2 earcandy bassbomb 2x12, a fender bassman 410 and matching 115 (the series before the newest ones out,) or the older fender bassman 2x15 (or Sunn 2x15 with fender badges) Help!!!
