I'm in a much simpler place now myself.
For the past six years I've had custom build basses from Sandberg and Shuker. They were truly fantastic instruments with great electronics, 18 volt operation and six strings..... But.
My wonderful son Rufus was born three months ago and I sold the lot, bought a jap P bass and love the simple plug and play attitude.
It really suits where I am in life, Im not saying I will never go back to a six string custom build but for now I'm a very happy daddy.
Keep life simple .... Buy a P.
