    Played this one at the NAMM show today...WOW.

    Great P-Bass. The neck was amazing and the pre means some great tonal options. For those who think the P-Bass is a one trick pony, check this one out.

    I was very impressed...

    Man I am dying to try one out......... Loved the Sadowsky P and got the Nordstrand P but I would love to see how this one stands in relation to those two. :)

    More versatility with the 3 band pre and toggle switches (mid & bright)...as far as feel...the neck on this bass is similar to the Nordy necks. To me, the Sadowsky neck is a bit fuller.

    That's a whole lotta knobs for a P-bass. :eyebrow:

    Yeah, and that's what makes it different. Not better, not worse, just different.
     
  7. Cool design. I'd like to try one. Thing is, I quite like a lot of switches and tone knobs (I actually love the 4 band EQ and buttons on the recent Musicman basses) but for me, personally, a P bass is all about passive tone with vol/tone. Anymore and it doesn't feel like a P.
