    I did a trade for an SX P Bass and all I can say is wow. This thing sounds great. I cant believe what they sell for. I am liking the sound better than my Ibanez SRX590. only mods are CTS tone pot, with an orange drop. I think this might become my 2nd bass on stage behind my legend custom. I really wasn't expecting this bass to sound better than my Ibanez to me I was just getting it to play around with a PBass.

    Sound + you like(playability) = ROCKS!
    Who cares what the label says?

    Congrats on the SX, it's a beauty!
    The SX P/J here surprised me as well(also got to have a "P" sound if required).
    What's really nice is when other bassists compliment you on the sound and then ask you "What kind of bass is that?" and "How much did it cost?"....

    ^ Yep.

    Headstock decals don't make tone. Cool P & congrats! I love that Sunburst & Maple combo. :bassist:

    Another satisfied customer! :bassist:

    I think people can go overboard on the mods-- I didn't even switch out anything until the pot went bad. I always dug the little bit of flame on that neck...

    I'm stoked that you like it!

    I took some "candids" of her when she was mine, too... here's one....

    You guys are making me sick! I want an SX P 5 string (or even better a P/J) so bad I can taste it. Cripes. I'd even go Ursa headstock for one! This is one reason why playing a 4 is an advantage!

    You and me both - I've eyeballed at least one of my 5-string J's with ideas that involve a router and/or dremel. But I keep telling myself "anyday day now" Rondo will come out with one. LOL! But yeah, it's getting to me too. :D



    I usually don't go for photoflame finishes too much because a lot of them tend to look intentionally "over the top", but that P on the right is just plain hot!

    I built it up myself from a neck I had leftover from my teenage years (wish I'd known not to start routing that body!), traded it at a shop for a Palatino EUB, which I then traded on for my blueburst Carvin L76P!

    I had to do some trimming on that one to fit. It wasn't a rondo. I also had to rout that neck pocket a touch to get the fender neck in it... thanks for the trade, it arrived today, everything looks ok. Will hook it up tomorrow and check it out! :)
