    For tone I like Paul McCartney from Sgt Peppers & later.
    When I`m Sixty Four, Lovely Rita, Come Together & Get Back come to mind (but there are so many more). Paul just had that sound. Take care. Bob

    James Jamerson sounded collosal considering the recording equipment of the day - but I think it's his note choice and phrasing I really like moreso than the tone.

    Many to list, but i'll stick with him.

    Sheehan, Butler, Harris and of course Duck. All classic P tones, all totally different from each other.

    Flea's sound from RHCP's "Blood Sugar Sex Magik". Nothing can beat Wal Mk. II
    I also love Paul Simonon's Epiphone Rivoli sound from The Clash'es "London Calling" and the unique clanky sound Steve Harris does on his P-Bass.

    John Archer, bassist of Hunters & Collectors, has a great P-Bass sound, especially on the live The Way to Go Out.
