  1. I understand the tonal difference but why do manufacturers want to screw around with the traditional P placement?

  2. Hmmm…. think I need one of these.

  3. I have a feeling that most of these basses are going to be collected and never played.

  4. love to see my favorite p placement on production basses, even if they are limited production.
