    Just bought this P-Bass off of Reverb. I am not a bass player but I play a lot of blues. I have been making backing tracks for myself and was getting tired of using a keyboard to enter bass notes. Took a flyer. I pick it up in Portland tomorrow!

    Sweet. I was looking at those when I was buying a new bass. Very nice looking guitars, and the reviews say they play well too.

    Nice Classic look.

    Congrats on a good choice. If you decide to dabble in Flats, Rotosound 77's sound great on the P Bass and are very responsive to various string attack.

    Yes so it has the lacquer rather than poly finish. I was going to go my usual route of buying an MJT body and Musikraft neck and then get hardware pickups, etc. I have done that for my Tele and Strat, but this just seemed so easy! I am dropping it off to get setup and Plek'd when I get it home.

    I am looking for that vintage fifties and early sixties blues bass sound so I assume flats are the way to go?

    I can't wait to get it home and start using it.

    Yes, imo Flats on a P Bass are hard to beat.

    I like early R&B, soul, and the like. I tried several sets of rounds but always kept coming back to the flats.
