I'm in the market for such bass, but none to be found? Tons of Jazz but no Pbasses?
Let me elaborate. I meant to say not many, as I see only one. There are a bunch of MIM and MIA Jazzes.
how many do you really need? that's one of the beauties of the pbass - simplicity. It does it's thing and does it really well.
It's not that I need more than one to buy, but a few choices would be nice. I'm not looking to break the bank. I've been watching the classifieds here on TB and CL, but nothing to speak of. A nice MIM would be nice. Were these ever made?
lack of demand?
Who knows? But even though they're out there I have yet to actually see one in any of the three music stores I go to.
Jazz basses are just more popular. It's the perfect bass that Leo ever came up with, next to the Stingray bass
I think that there just starting to get popular. I wouldn't be surprised if fender came out with am MIM version in the near future. five years ago there wasn't even an MIA p bass.
So maybe I should consider a Jazz instead.
Huh? I'm pretty sure that Fender was cranking out MIA P's way back in 2007
I think fenders 5 strings are poorly made; there design is poor, especially compared to other higher end designs who have perfected the 5 string setup. I'm a 35" scale man
Fenders aren't meant to be more than 4 strings. They are meant to be the most basic of instruments. That's how they started and still are. There's hardly anything complex about them. Hell, they don't even angle their headstocks or use higher mass bridges
I have a 2011 fender P 5 string. Plays and sounds great. I got it used for under 1k in near mint condition. Got it off the classifieds here.
GC is regularly stocking five string Fender American Standard Precisions now, so they are easier to get than ever.
They also made an American Deluxe Precision V, which was the best P bass they ever built.
a mim version would be awesome
Sadowsky makes P 5ers
Absolutely, and many years before.
Not in 5 string, which I think is what he meant. The 5 string P was introduced in 2009 or 2010 I think.
