what do u think of a Fender P Bass Standard as a first bass?
I think that would be a very good choice. You might want to check out a standard Jazz too and pick the one which neck fits best in your hand. Either way, great choices.
Very good choice.
Leo seemed to think it was good enough for a first bass!!
If it is good enough for Leo, then it is good enough for you.
For the money, you'd be hard pressed to find a better choice.
like rayzak said, I would check out a Jazz too, I like them better than P's for a coupla reasons (tone and feel)
Does Fender make the P bass in left hand?
Great choice and the answer is yes, I have seen them lefty!
that would be my choice, if i could go back in time and give my younger self advice. go for it.
i anyone knows if there is a website that has left handed fender p bass can you please reply
To paraphrase Chris Rock, "Ain't nothin' wrong with a P-bass.".
One point that hasn't been brought up yet - A true "Fender Precision" (as opposed to a copy) will be worth more on the used market if you decided to trade up.
A Standard P or J would do the trick. You'll love the P sound.
kinda hard to beat this logic... go with the P Bass!
I would go back in time, and tell DHC's younger self to ignore his older self, buy a Standard Jazz Bass (as opposed to a P), and invest in Microsoft.
oh sure, like i'd listen to some stranger over my own damn self. i was a stupid kid, but not THAT stupid.
oh, and before i came back to the present i'd rip out a mean "Johnny B Goode" at the Enchantment Under the Sea dance.
Sounds good to me! But I'd agree with other posters in that you should try a Jazz and a P and see which your prefer - they are quite different, but both very good!
You could definitely do a whole lot worse!
Absolutely. A standard P or J would be good choices. Good instruments and with a decent second hand or trade-in value if you want to buy something else later on. Or just keep it.
They are also 'right' for any music style, as opposed to some flying-V or some heavy metal-only body shape, which would be harder to trade in or sell.
IMO there is no better first bass than a Fender P or a Fender P copy. Personally I would recommend visiting Rondo Music and look at their P bas copies. Their stuff gets rave reviews here, look for the "Essex Megathread".
Check the aforementioned Rondo Music for a well regarded left handed P bass copy.
Fender P is quite a good choice. But you might also want to check the Yamaha RBX and BB series.
