This is the 4th PBass I've owned, but it's the first with frets, believe it, or not. It was a toss up between this one and a CS '64 Jazz Relic in LPB with matching headstock--not an easy decision, but I think I made the right choice. It's a Custom Shop '59 Relic, and I love it. I know some people think the relic-ing is dumb, but I think it's pretty cool. The bass plays great, and sounds even better after getting some Chromes on there. Through my Walkabout/Aguilar rig, it sounds very much like a PBass with flats. IOW, exactly what I was looking for. A very light bass that feels great on the shoulder with the tone to die for. I still love my Bongos, but there is nothing more beautiful than a beat up PBass, IMHO.
