(sorry for the crapload of threads)

I've been looking at basses under $600, and the P-Bass looks like something I'd like playing. I play alternative, Metallica, worship, and some blues.

A P-bass fits everything

I dunno, is it? Go to a store and try one out. You'll know pretty quick if it's right for you.

The P-bass looks like a good option for you, but looking at your equipment list, I recommend getting a better amp. The amp will go a longer way in improving your tone than a new p-bass. You already have a GSR200 which is a good bass in it's own right and has that split single coil that a p-bass has. Right now, the right buy for you is an amp.

A P-bass is a pretty versitile bass, but no one can tell you which bass is right for you.
"In modern music, a lot of people are really stuck on the example, asif it were the idea. It takes millions of examples to articulate an idea, so don't get stuck on the f*cking example." - Joshua Homme, 2008.

I love my P bass (pj config but I'm using the J less and less) because it almost seems like half way between single coil and humbucking. The only 2 problems I have with it is:
1- It's a bugger to keep my thumb on a P pickup
2- only having 20 frets annoys me

Okay guys, I have a confession to make. Not really a confession since it's something that's been bugging me for awhile but I've always been in denial about it.

**** you gilly, it's not what you think

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

Yeah, if you look at my GAS list (which is basically my list of what to get), the Carvin is first on the list. I know that I need a gig-worthy amp before a good bass, since not everywhere I go has a PA.

It is? Looking at the picture it looked like it was a similar pickup to my bass, which I have no problem having my thumb on.

Edit: Also, would this bridge:
A. Fit a P-bass no problem?
B. Be better than a stock Fender Standard MIM P-bass bridge?

Well maybe you won't have that problem then? I don't know what Ibanez P puckups are like.
I think I've seen Delirium (can I call him Ben??) saying the same thing though... I think it was him

Sigged.

But yeah, P basses can fit most genres, except debatably metal that's more complex than Metallica.
