    Looking for a stock P bass (or P/J) thats got 24 frets. I know anything is possible custom but i would like to keep costs reasonable for this search. if anyone knows, thanks. (it doesnt need to be a current model).

    there you go, Fender does offer surprises from time to time. Must be others out there. Anybody?
  4. It's not a P bass, but schecter makes a 24 fret bass. It's called the Stiletto Elite 4. A nice bass, neck through, active pups. I've had one for a few years now and I love it. Nice gold hardware too.
    Mine cost 375 used, last time I checked they were ~550 new.

    Does anyone out here have one of these? It seems that we hardly hear about them. Fender's kinda stuck in their bread and butter P&J line I guess. Ppl don't want them to make anything else.

    Warmoth offers a 24 fret extension option on their necks. I don't think I've ever seen a non-custom P with 24.

  10. Mike Lull maybe

    Oh, Nino would make one too.
  11. what is with the headstock? when i think fender, i think fat headstock in which i accidently hit a trumpet player with one time(long story, he deserved it). this is more like an ibanez thing. does this mean fender's selling out to what the mass media wants? :rollno: say it ain't so fender!
  12. I never said it was, its a P bass or P/J style bass he is after, thats pretty much a P/J setup right there :p

    The Fender American PBass Deluxe is 22 fret:


    The Stu Hamm Urge II is a true 24-fret bass - so what if it has an extra J pup?...

    The Stu Hamm model does not have traditional P-pickup placement, though. I'd definetly keep looking. That Ibanez looked cool. You could always upgrade the pickups.

    yes in fact i just ordered an Ibanez SRP400. Shipped to my door for $230!
    I play a Warwick Streamer (P/J 24 Fret) and have wanted a "more pure" P bass with the 2 octave range for a lot of the music I play. It took a while to understand what the P bass is about: perfect tone for about 90% of the time, and a challenge to use ones hands to vary that great sound as needed. At least thats how i see the P bass
  17. Let me know how it works out!
