    Just nabbed this 2015 bad Larry off Craigslist. Fresh strings, a quick setup, and I'm about to put my MIM Jazz V beater on the block. I've never had a P before (don't know how that happened) but methinks a new pickup and different tone cap will make me quite the happy little camper.

    Don't get me wrong: I won't be abandoning my beloved Dingwall any time soon. But for a cheap backup that gives me a new tone to play with, this thing builds out the collection pretty dang nicely for the price.

    Anyway, just wanted to share my excitement with others who know how it feels...
  2. I have the burst/tort version of this bass. Phenomenal player for the money. Everything you buy a P-bass for.

    The Squier VM/CV series have provided nothing but really fun and rewarding instruments. I have a few to fill in some gaps.

    I had one and agree they are great basses . The stock pickup is very good too . I bought an American Fender P-5 pickup and put it in mine and the tone was hardly better than stock if at all . I also put an inexpensive high mass bridge on mine . If I wanted a P-5 I think it's as good as any . S7300689.JPG
