I didn't think a p-bass was really my thing. But I decided that I had to have one in my collection. It probably helps that I got it in my favorite color--lake placid blue. I upgraded the bridge with a HipShot Kickass, and the strings to La Bella Flats, and now it seems to work for almost everything! It just seems to have the most consistent tone. I prefer the thinner j-bass neck, but evidently not enough to stop playing this bass.
