I have no problems with Fenders. In fact, I think in many respects thery are better now than in 1975. I bought a Fender PBass Special (PJ pickup) made in Mexico for around 495.00 and it smokes! I have played bass for over 30 years, and this little gem rocks my world. I don't think you would have any problems with a FEnder.
Also - I teach bass in the Metro Atlanta area, and many of my students have a Squire PBass. A great entry level bass. Do a decent setup on it and you would have a killer bass!

: Hi,
: I have been playing bass now for about a year, and I'm pretty good.I have been using some no name, second-hand 4 string. But now, after playing other basses, I've decided to get a new bass with a p-style (instead of my current p/j style)split coil pickup. The only problem is i dont know what kind to get. I'm leaning towards a fender (or squier) standard p-bass, but my brother, a more experienced player, says that fenders haven't really been good since about 1975, so i dont know if i should go with another type or stick with the fender. If anyone has any experience with fenders, or just has a good (cheap) reccomendation, your help would be greatly appreciated!!

: Thanx,
: Mark
