I want to order a custom P-bass with an ash/mahogany 5-piece body. I'd prefer the sound to be a thumpy passive P (somewhat John Deacon-ish) sound, but with a wider and flatter frequency response. I want the bass to sit in the mix rather then cut through the mix. I don't want the sound to be too vintage though. I'm a fingerstyle player, I don't solo or slap, but I like to play in the middle of the neck. I think I'll string this bass with EB flats, I really like these strings. I suppose a Dark Star or a Villex P would be right for this bass. Which one to choose? If you have other ideas I'll be glad to know. Thanks.
