    Well, I did something I shouldn't today. I put some money down on a new Standard P-bass in Natural. For the longest tiem I've wanted a natural/rosewood, and to add a Basslines SPB-3 and black pearl pickguard. To go with that, I still have my Jazz Bass that I'm going to be fixing up. I've decided to forego the active preamp, and just leave her passive. So after a couple of hundred more bucks, I'll have a nice natural/rosewood/black pearl P-bass and black/rosewood/tort Jazz bass, both with Basslines.

    Hey X,
    That natural p-bass is a nice bass for the money! I saw a very well matched one this week at GC. as for the SPB-3 pup, I just installed those in a standard P-bass I had sitting around. There is a big difference in sound, it sounds much thicker and clearer at the same time! I also have a standard P-bass with Fralins in it and it nails the old school Motown vibe (which I wanted) cold.

    And besides, there is nothing wrong with a Fender family,
    I own 12 Fenders myself!
