So depending on whether or not Musician's Friend is able to fulfill an order I placed in February I may be looking at a new Sire bass. The question is whether to get a V7 or a P7. Now, this seems obvious: "Do you want a P sound or a jazz sound?" Unfortunately, it's not quite that simple. I'm almost completely happy with my P-with-flats bass, so that sound is covered. I don't have a P with rounds yet, though, that gives me quite the rock-possibly-with-a-pick tone that I'm looking for. I like a fairly chunky sound, not too bright, with lots of lows. I might use half-rounds, in fact, but like I said I'm still looking for this sound. I have a Squier CV Jazz 60's that I'm very fond of, but right now it has some very dead roundwounds on it and I like the tone a lot for rock, but find it a little dull for funk and far too dull for slap. (I suck at slap and don't see myself playing much of it, but hey, it's fun to learn new stuff, right?) So, either bass might fill a spot I don't feel is filled, but I'm not sure which will fit better. My inclination is to go with the V7 since Marcus Miller is known for jazz basses and the V7s get universally stellar reviews. I've heard only good things about the P7 as well, but it doesn't seem quite as knock-your-socks off. Also, is a preamp in a P really a good thing? I don't know; that's why I'm asking. Thanks for reading my novella. Now what do you think and why?
