Best looking P bass?

Recommended Posts

@bnt if it was vintera I would’ve bought one. It’s American Vintage, meaning about £1500-1700 and not “cheap”.

It’s the American Original ‘50s Precision in Aztec Gold 🙂

Ooh - well, the Vintera in Vintage Blonde is what caught my eye:

I had the 50’s classic in honey blonde, remarkably similar

Is that the new Vintera 50's Precision? I'm strongly considering one of these for flatwounds and a plectrum. However, I also think I would like a two-pickup configuration, and right now the Sandberg-inspired (heh) Harley Benton Enhanced looks very good to me in the Natural finish:

That is very tempting. I couldn't find anything that was trying to do the 'sandberg VM' thing so bought the real deal about two days ago instead. I'd be interested to see how one of those Harley Bentons plays as it may prove a useful backup. Any chance you fancy being Patient Zero for me and picking one up?

Not necessarily the best looking I’ve seen (that was a worn 1968 sunburst with pre TV logo and lollipop tuners) but I love this - it’s a Fender CS Masterbuilt currently at Peach Guitars (for an insane price).

Hi, no the one I saw , and pictured, is the Aztec gold American original 50's precision. The Vintera isn't as sparkly as this I think, though there are some great colour schemes on the Vinteras too.

These are ace - love them. There’s one on eBay at the moment but the owner has screwed a thumb rest into the body at a really unworkable angle. Such a shame.

I’m really intrigued by these. Can you give someone who knows nothing about fan-fret basses a crash course in what they’re like?!

The OW P-Bass version looks great, btw!

Oh go on then...

Same bass just a change of pick up. Shuker body with a PB70’s neck

Lull TBird pick up (top pic) and a David Allen 1088p Reverse P in the bottom. The neck feels great and with flats feels amazingly smooth. I’ve never rubbed my hands in butter but I’ve heard it said...

A few years ago Fender did a 60th anniversary edition P/J for Thomann which had a lovely violin burst. That was a stunner.
