What We Think

Condition: Used, Good - wear and checking consistent with an instrument of this era

Weight: 9.05 lbs.  

James Jamerson, John Paul Jones, Bootsy Collins, Geezer Butler, Louis Johnson, Steve Harris, Chuck Rainey, Rocco Prestia... the list of notable and legendary bassists who've embraced the iconic P-bass over the years is a long and illustrious one. What is it about this simple, yet brilliant design that attracts players of all styles and genres? We believe it's the bold, "up front" quality of its deep, round sound, with a defined bump in mid-range. The controls are simple, yet decidedly versatile, and the body shape is a true classic. This bass has all of that and the special vintage personality that comes from being around for 47 years. No matter what your style, you'll find what you're looking for in this baby!
