    Picky, to me, is going and playing a ton of basses and having a hard time liking one enough to buy. If you want a blue bass that has narrow string spacing but sounds like a stock P-bass, I'm sure you can find one. Just got up to GC (or somewhere better) and start playing.

  4. There's always a problem I run into though.

    The SR500 (the first picture) is one of the most comfortable playing basses I've ever played. It sounds ok, but the tone could be a lot better. Plus, it's active, and I don't really care for active EQ on a bass. Also, the finish isn't that great.

    The SR1000EFM (the 2nd picture) is the most beautiful finish I've ever seen on a bass, but I've never been able to play one or hear how they sound. Plus, now they're so rare I doubt I'll ever be able to play one.

    The P bass has the sound I want, plus it's passive. I don't have to fight or mess with a bunch of knobs to get the tone I want, I just plug in and play. But an MIA P bass is $1200. Also, the neck plays ok but not nearly as well as the Ibanez. I've tried less expensive P basses but they just don't compare really.

    You may not like the looks, but check out a used Peavey Fury. It's basically a P-Bass with a Jazz style neck, and they go for less than $200 on ebay.
