. There's a youtube series "Scotts Bass" or something, he's pretty good and insightful in general. One video he interviewed a big name session bass player who said if you don't show up to a studio with a P-bass, you might as well go back home. This is my bass I futz around on. Washburn XB-100 P-bass I bought used four or five years ago for $40 and later modded with a pair of J-bass pickups and a Strat 5-way blade switch. The neck pickup gives some low tones and the 2/4 in-between options give some more fun. A lot of PJ basses out there so I tried the neck addition (because the 5-way works best with three pickups) and while the Internet may freak out (shrug) this guitar layout as an experiment does fine.
