I'm a 6 string guy but tried a number of bass guitars today. I started with 2 big box stores because of both offering 15% discount for Presidents Day. I was thinking of a P/J set up. Yamaha, Ibanez, Squier, Cort, Fender. Of those, Fender sounded best followed closely by some active Ibanez. At the 3rd stop, a small independent, there was one G&L. Not the p/j set up but a Kiloton with single Humbucker with a toggle for series, parralell, or split. It was my favorite in feel and sound...not exactly p or j, but close. I was glad to bring it home.
