What are some"Fender"esque six string P/J basses?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by The_Ryst, Jan 8, 2006.


  1. WHat are some six bangers that have a p/j configuration with a switch so you can get that classic P punch or the J growl all with the extended range of a six.

    I'd like it so you can single out one pickup (yeah I know that was a stupid statement) and blend them, etc.

    I don't want anything too ridiculous in the price range...any tips?
     
  2. That's pretty much what I asked Chris Stambaugh to do when I commissioned this:
    Edit: I know it doesn't look 'Fenderesque' in the least, but the tone was what I was after- that & 3/4" string spacing.

    This is the closest thing i've seen to a 6 string J-bass. I think it's a "The Low-End" or something.
