    Greetings fellow low frequency warriors!

    I have browsed the TB forums for quite a while reading and learning but never posting.

    I figured I would say hello with pictures of my main squeeze.

    Fender MIA 5 string P deluxe 60th Anniversary


    I am waiting on the neck for my first Warmoth build that will hopefully turn out pretty sweet. :bassist:

    Very beautiful. I love P-basses in general, but that is particularly sweet.

    Welcome to TB!

    So on 5 string P basses the A string uses the bridge side of the split pickup? Interesting, I've never noticed that before.

    Otherwise, I'm more than certain that American Standard PVs must be B, E, A (lows: neckside) D, G (trebles: bridgeside)

    That is one the finest basses Fender ever produced IMO. My P5 Deluxe is my main gigging axe. It records beautifully and has a huge range of tones ranging from old school Pbass to Jbass and even approaches Stingray tones with humbucker bridge pickup and powerful midrange scoop.
