Hey guys, how's it going, etc, etc. I somewhat recently picked up bass for my band, and have been playing on a Squire P bass. It's a nice bass, but a little neck heavy. Does anyone have any quick fix tips for balancing it out a little bit?

Never heard of a P bass being neck-heavy. Anyway, if it's really that bad then move the strap button from the horn to the neck plate.

I'll look into that. It's not too bad, just enough to be annoying however haha.

What bass is it? A wide leather strap would help you, Hipshot's Ultralite tuners might be worth a crack too.

Hah. Play an Epi Thunderbird and experience the neck heaviness/dip on it. Youd hate it.

HAH! That would deff work man. I prefer a cinderblock to hold it down on my epi though.

^You need one with the neck dive on those.

To the OP, as consecutive e has pointed out, you probably have more of a strap issue than anything else. I suspect you are using your old guitar strap for the bass. Go out and spend the lucre and get yourself a proper wide strap. Your back and shoulders will thank you as well.
