I have noticed when playing with older guitar player they tend to smile and favor a P bass to the point that they speak favorably of it at some point. I like my P bass because it is nice to play but the sound was never satisfactory to me as it is not articulate and I do not agree with anyone when it comes to cutting through the mix. They simply do not, meaning there are guitars that do it so much better including a Jazz bass (With the treble on full, bass on about 7 and tone down to about 3) an EB3 kills the lot of them and so would a MM with the tone down about 3-4. The tendency for booming and blending notes loses me unfortunately but the Hartke and Marshall tube amps help bring out the best in what they can do. Anyone else find this?
