In Reply to: Which Fender P-Bass? posted by Keith on June 11, 2001 at 13:13:27:
: I am a guitarist but I frequently record my own bass tracks in my home studio. I am tired of borrowing basses and was thinking of purchasing a Fender P-Bass and I don't want to spend a lot of $$$$ (would like to stay around $300).
: Which one should I buy or look for as there are so many variations (I am not opposed to used or new)? I have seen the Mexican P-Basses for around $300 new. Are they any good? I remember my friends Squire copies or Strats and Teles were pretty awful. Sound (rather than playability) are most important as it will only be used for recording mostly simple bass parts. Thanks.
If you're looking for *just* a P-Bass - not needing anything more - check out the Kramer Focus 420S at www.MusicYo.com; it's $89.95, and it kicks the Squier's butt, and it's equal to or better than the Mexi P-Bass!
I'd tend to agree with Brak, though; it's better to have a bass with more tonal flexibility for even simple studio stuff.
Hope that helps!
