  • Summary: I've had one of these for nearly a year and have gigged locally and traveled with the bass, even shipping it across the country and back with no issues. I bought it thinking it would be a decent sounding, nice looking pbass that could be easily replaced if damaged, lost, or stolen......
  • Pros: sound, looks, price
  • Cons: not usa made

  • Summary: I let go of my 2003 Highway 1 P Bass for this one. It had a warmer sound and more comfortable neck. Even though I have eight basses, I find myself going to this one for a variety of uses - mostly in church. I have no need for any other P Bass. I love this one.
  • Pros: Great value, warm tone, excellent sustain, vintage look
  • Cons: Not a slapper (OK by me)

  • Summary: When I received my beautiful 2 tone burst 50's p, i immediately put flats on it. This puppy sounds killer! Deep, smooth bass response, but enough glass that it is still a very articulate sounding instrument even with the tone rolled down. With the tone at approx.
  • Pros: sound, feel, overall craftmanship
  • Cons: tight tuners

  • Summary: In order to get the full effect of this bass, you have to try it w/ flatwound strings. When I got it, it came w/ Fender super bass roundwound strings and had a lot of finger noise. I was somewhat dissappointed in the sound and couldnt really get it to sound right.
  • Pros: Simple, Classic sound, easy playability
  • Cons: Not the most versatile bass out there

  • Summary: I have the Honey blond and it is a beauty. This thing has that tone that was in my head that fat old school p-bass sound. it feels and plays line a dream nice p- width neck and the finish on the neck is not stickey like that poly garbage they put on the American basses now.
  • Pros: Great neck and the sound is excellent great old school tone
  • Cons: Keep turning the tuners the wrong way they are reverse but that is the only thing .

classic 50's P

  • Summary: The Fender Classic Series or reissues are excellent made basses both USA and Mexican models.. The build quality is as good as any USA Fender which I also own. This bass is basically a 57P reissue true to the original. The big neck and headstock add to the fat tone while still easy to play.

  • Summary: I have played bass for about 40 years now, and yes, I made it my life's work. I currently have about 16 basses. I am not a collector; I play most of them for different purposes. I sold my 73 P bass back in 1983 because I had a custom Alembic built for me.

  • Summary: I ordered this bass off the net and didn't know what to expect but trusted all the good reviews I had read. In the early eighties I owned the american version of this bass. Other than the chrome covers and finger rest I cant tell much diffence at all. The woodwork is every bit as good.
