    no p-bass?
    then my answer is the G&L L-1000.
    one of the loudest damn passive basses i've ever heard.

    Rickenbacker 4000! Pickup is in a position comparable to P-Bass, legend says this pickup sounds different than a 4001/4003 with just the bridge pickup selected. I used to think they looked yucky, but came around.

    This video maybe isn't the best sound-wise but it looks cool!

    I like my StingRay classic, it has a passive single pickup, it has an active 2 band pre amp though.... does it still count?

    Sure why not? :cool: I'm trying to find out more about passive single-pickup basses that aren't Ps. I think it's odd that The Precision was so influential yet there don't seem to be many passive single-pickup basses out there that aren't straight-up copies :meh: There are loads & loads of basses with two pickups (humbuckers, single-coils, soapbars) with unique (non-Jazz) body shapes.

    I guess there isn't much demand for what I'm looking for :( I do like my Precision Bass but I wish there were more passive single-pickup basses for me to try out.

    Edit: I know there is a thread where people posted their single-pickup basses. Not sure why I made my own thread. Guess I was bored.
