do i get another p-bass

Postby friendship » Thu Nov 08, 2018 9:16 pm

I've had a Squier p-bass since like 2000 A.D. It's been through the fucking wringer, every part of it is worn out, and it deserves retirement.

My first thought is to just get another cheap p-bass? I've never felt like it was lacking, but maybe I'm missing out on something? It's just for home recording use, so I'd like a nice-sounding pickup, good action, and stable tuning.

2000 A.D., huh?

If you like the versatility of a P-Bass, stick with it. :idk:

I'd at least encourage you to go out and play other stuff just to get a feel for other stuff. :poke:

Yeah owning multiple p basses is legit.

I'd look at squier VM/ CVs if I were you :idk:

you can probably find a perfectly useable old Fender MIM P-Bass for less than $450.

That's because in the end the function of a bass is what counts and why they are a more useful instrument than a guitar.
