lpdelux, where'd you get the Standard fretless? Is it a 70's? I've seen them but can't find any for sale,just them Jazz models. I have always liked the P-Bass. It feels good in my hands and if I had to defend myself with it I don't think it would it at all. Made tough.


The fretless is a Fender Standard FSR Precision from MF that I bought last Fall for $450. The neck is a Warmoth with an unlined maple fingerboard and P nut width (I can't handle the skinny J necks). I had Warmoth finish it and cut a nut for it, so all I had to buy were a set of Schaller tuners and a string tree. It cost around $375 for everything, including shipping. Here's a link to a photo:

The neck came with side dots at the positions where the III, V, VII, IX, XII, XV and XVII frets would be on a fretted neck. I recently bought a roll of thin silver pinstriping tape from an auto parts shop and put them on the side of the neck at all fret positions...the dots worked for simple songs, but it was hard to boogie without a little more guidance!

I kept the rosewood fingerboard fretted neck so I can sell it with both. My other Ps are a Classic '50s and a '51 RI, so it may be apparent that I like maple fingerboards.

Sorry for the delay in responding -- I've been away.

The P is a killer, if you get the right combination. I currently have three (the Classic '50s, a Standard with a fretless neck, and a '51 P Reissue). Love them Ps!

The gig there went well although I was fighting a severe head cold and had so much cold remedy medicine in me, I didn't feel real good.
At Saturdays gig I noticed my amp (I've noticed this before) seemed to peter out on the higher notes. Like they disappeared. I cranked on the treble of my Bassman 250 and got some noise from it. This morning I was practicing to the drum machine and noticed the eq lights coming on with every beat, six of the seven levels lit up. An idea struck. I plugged my bass into the Berringer pa head and played up and down the neck. The bass made 63hz and 160hz light right up but that was it. On the first string highest fret, 400hz barely lit up, even with the tone knob all the way up. I plugged back in to the Bassman. I have them middle eq's I can adjust from 150-700hz and another that goes from 800-1.5hz. Well if my guitar ain't putting out anything over 200-400hz then having the eq above that made no sense. I have the 150-700hz set at about 200-250 and the other one set at 800hz, it's the lowest setting. I also cranked the horn to 3/4 max and I'll be darn if that amp didn't come alive. All the way up and down the fret board the notes rang out very evenly. It is deep and smooth but now every note plays. Should I had known this already? Some times these discoveries make me feel stoopid. We have no gigs this coming weekend because I'm on call at work but after that we're playing every weekend for the next three months. I can't wait to hear what my "break through" discovery is gonna sound like.
