    When I first started with bass, I was completely turned off by the look of Fender P bass. Its really old fashion!!! and what?! only "one" pickup? No way I'm going to play that thing.

    It took me three years to be convinced that only a fender P can give me that sound I need. I want to get myself a P bass. I'm looking for a maple neck, black body with a black pickguard. If you have such a combination, please share a picture of your black P. TQ

    Lousy picture, but you get the idea. It looks great in person. Kind of Harleyish!
     
  3. The one in the middle is a '78 with a "c" neck, refretted with super jumbo frets, re-radiused to 12", Rio Grande "Muy Grande" P and Basslines SJB-2 in the bridge.

    She plays like butta' and sounds like a P should! :)

    Thanks for all the pics. The all black P's are great.

    I played a few P at the shop this morning. I feel the neck of the MIM P is too thin. The neck of the Am standard is just right and the broken it feel is great. I like the Am std black P with maple neck. Most likely I'm going to get it and put a black pickguard on it immediately.

  7. How about a black P-bass, maple fretboard, with a mirror pickguard? ;)
