    Not to be a complete idiot, but I've never played a bass with ashtrays. What is the advantage? I've always wondered.

    Some people say they reduce hum, and you can also put string mutes in the bridge cover, but other than that they're pretty much just aestetic.

  11. Where did you get that 5-string P-bass ashtray? I've never seen them before. Have you seen a P-bass 5-string pup cover as well? I MUST KNOW! :hyper:

    Just got me a P5! :D
