Love it. Have always been a fan of the OG p-bass style.

Stick a hot rails in it and sand down the body and replace the pickguard screws with nails.

Is this the one that you said the neck was bothering you George?

i don't know a lot about basses but i love the one i just got. I think you can see it in some of the pics i posted lately.

yeah, although i think it's just i need to get used to it. i'm probably trying to run before i can walk, doing 4 fret reaches with my index and pinky etc.

the neck does feel deep and the nut is wider than a jazz bass but i'm sure i'll warm up to it

That should happen pretty quick, I don't think its any wider than a strat, but the heavier bass strings definately add to it feeling wider.

I don't know shit about basses. Mine plays like a guitar to me. The transition wasn't bad. I went get the specs because i wasn't sure...Here's what i have..

Squier by Fender Standard P Bass Special Edition Black Mirror Rosewood Fretboard

agathis body with a maple Jazz Bass neck. The rosewood fretboard has 20 medium-jumbo frets and a 9-1/2" radius for buttery-smooth playability. The black mirror finish is accentuated by the chrome hardware and pickguard. A split single-coil pickup in the center and a Jazz Bass pickup in the bridge give you loads of tonal versatility.

It seems to be a mix between a p and j bass i'm understanding..It has a volume control for each pickup and master tone.

yeah, i'm hoping ill get used to the neck - it is exactly the same as a strat but it's deeeep .

what's harder than the neck though is consistent finger and thumb use. that's gonna be hard. up to this point i've always flopped through with a pick but i'm determined to try this properly

brandon that bass looks fantastic. there's a fender one in production that i was actually looking at but it's £600. i might actually look out for that squier version now! it has the perfect configuration: jazz bridge pickup and neck taper, and precision split pickup and body.
