No I'm not being a wise guy and I did search. Although discussion of Precision basses takes up 20% of what we talk about here, I couldn't find an answer to my version of this question. I am on a quest, so to speak, to get a Precision bass since I've never had one. Now that I am looking around it seems like there are tons of basses made by Fender and Squire that are "P Basses" but I am guessing they do not all sound the same. What in this huge sea of P Basses do you need to get to really get a P Bass? Do you have to get an MIA Precision Standard to get the sound? Does a Precision Plus Bass sound the same? How about a P-bass special? Fullerton Era Precision Bass? Do active electronics negate it getting a real P Bass sound (MIA Deluxe)? You got the idea. Thanks in advance for the help.
