aight check this (sorry it just sounds cool in my head to start with it)

so i own 3 basses a Warwick thumb, Ebmm 20th anniversary stingray 5 (my newest one) and my first bass the fender Precision MIM and since i got my warwick i have not even touched my p-bass but as of this summer around the time i bought the EBMM i have been playing all 3 basses but really focusing on the p-bass which is wierd. so thinking about it i have realized that the reason i am so attracted to the P-bass recently is because of that thick and juicy mid range, so now i'm under the spell of the p-bass and lovign it. i still play the other basses alot but i'm really happy that i'm finally appreciating my p-bass and when i go away to university i'm going to either get another fender or bring this (becasue i don't want my expensive basses jacked)

thanks for reading

ha i was waiting for the question the entire time i read that and then when it ended i was like "woah...."

yeah I do love the P-bass but for my style I ended up deciding on my MIA Jazz. P-Bass seems to have increased much in popularity lately though, especially in modern rock. That great midrange seems to be perfect for the music, and it fits well. I've also seen a lot of stingrays in the genre now too. Hooray for great basses

yeah, I've got two expensive basses (my P-bass and my Stingray) and I really do play my cheaper basses more. My 4-string MIM jazz is stuffed with modifications I did with my dad, so it's got a lot of personal value to it, and therefore I'll probably never sell it. We installed an original Badass I bridge, a red tortoiseshell pickguard, and a totally awesome fretjob. Next thing it needs is a new set of Nordstrand or Fender pickups.

My other "cheap" bass is a Fender MIM jazz 5-string, which was owned by my old bass teacher, a guy 3 years older than me and a local bass god. I mean, this guy was a total prodigy. Unfortunately, he completely gave up bass for college and plenty of alchohol, so I bought his bass off of him, and here it shall stay. Every single local bass player wants to buy it off of me, but I say "nay!"

I also own an '06 Fender MIA Precision in butterscotch blonde, which is very, very nice. If you're considering one, I highly recommend it. The whole S-1 thing is a piece of ****, but the rest of the bass is wonderful, especially the graphite-reinforced neck.

yeah butterscotch is a great finish. if id have gotten an MIA P instead of an MIA J thats what I would gotten it in. Had to go with the Transparent Orange though, plus I'm too much of a J fan

But yeah the S-1 on the MIA P is a little wierd, it does work somewhat well on the MIA J, but I'm not dissapointed cause I figured it wouldn't be that great.Low expectations=high enjoyment

Plus the MIA's other features are incredibly great, so im not gonna complain

I fell in love with precision basses from the first moment I played my teacher's '73. I've now been a very happy owner of my MIA for nearly 2 years . I will agree the S-1 switching is a bit of a gimmick but it occasionally comes in useful to thin out the sound a little.

All in all a p-bass is perfect for the music I play and I just love that passive punch it gives!
