Bass #17. I needed this one...

The band is back together, so I needed another bass tuned to D, so here she is, a slightly beat up 2004 MIM Fender P Bass:

The highlights include a BadassII bridge, Seymour Duncan Quarter_Pounder PU. I have it strung with Rotosound Flats, (Steve Harris strings) which I found to have too much tension tuned to E, but feels just right in D.

 

Carry on.

So are you in 17 different bands and need a different bass for each one?

:)

Currently 3 in the stable, but the fretless bass stays home. The Stingray5 is tuned standard, this beat up puppy is down a whole step.

 

And yes, you're tuned down to D to keep things interesting.

One thing I forgot to mention, this bass is HEAVY. I don't have a scale in my house, but picking up my 5 String Stingray and this P-bass, the P-bass is noticeably heavier, I'm guessing 10-11lbs :crazy:

Yee-gods! So, if you figure by the pound you must have gotten a great deal.

It's ugly, it's heavy, it's detuned, congratulations!

I have nothing nice to say so . . .

Thank you kind sir. Another recession special; they cry, I buy.

Beautiful deal you got there.

 

I have 4 basses, but I won't feel complete until I have a Pbass, and next year, I will have one.

Guitar solos last 30 seconds, the bass line lasts for the whole song.

Interesting positioning of the bridge saddles. How is the intonnation?

It's actually spot on. I know it doesn't have the traditional top to bottom fade, but it works.

I hear that buying a Dingwall next can cure all that.
