    Hi Anthony,
    Love your post in you tube, especially on doing loops and solo.
    Does P-bass have the same tonal range for soloing with looping as J style bass?
    Thanks

    I'm not Ant (and I don't play him on TV), but I routinely loop and solo running the P pup on my YYD. Plenty of booty for a low line, and enough cut for solo lines. I don't really like JJ basses though so ymmv.

    Whatever you like. I run Fodera nickels, but I don't think it makes that much difference. Only thing might be that flats might not cut as well, but depends on a lot of other factors.

    I own about 50 basses. All of them are worthy for loops. Sometimes I'll create loops using multiple basses,...5 string, 7 string, acoustic, fretless,...

    For different parts.

    peace,
