I’m way more offended by the curtains......

.. Same here, but I quite like the curtains! 😉

 

That headstock is kinda post-pointy, isn't it? Quite acceptable if the bass is good.

Beautiful headstock... 😕

To be honest though I’m so completely and utterly conditioned to expect to see a Fender headstock with a P bass I always think anything else looks weird. Not so with J basses for some reason. Just the P bass.

Same! Even though there's absolutely nothing wrong with it. I guess it helps that it's black, it gives the bass a slightly more modern appeal.

Very late-90s correct!

Samick made so much decent gear at affordable prices. I still have three different power amps in the attic/music room. Good stuff!

The bass is a bit boring, look like a standard P pass pretty much, and I have slight aversion for tortoise pickguards, but I wouldn't call it ugly by any means.

I also prefer headstocks with the tuners balanced on each side, instead of in a long row, but other than that I actually think it looks truly beautiful, maybe it's a bit odd for exactly that kind of bass, but at least in it self it look great, whereas the rest of the bass just kind of looks mediocre.

Subjective of course; but to these eyes this is the bass equivalent of a car composed of the front end of a Ferrari grafted onto a Ford model T.😲

The Fender P bass has the ugliest headstock in the world. (YMMV)

I'd take that over a Fender any day. Although sadly it still has the bland Fender style body.

So you like the headstock but not the boring P-Bass body?
