Sounded nice Charles , fine bass.
I just bought a P bass I swear it’s like playing a 2×4 for building a house , a hand full.
Thanks ‘

    Thank you Mark!

    I love P basses. They are great for playing bass lines, but they are not designed to play solo bass music (tapping and other techniques). For playing solo, it is fairly essential to have a bass that is well set up, has nice sustain and is capable of quite low action.
