Picked up a 2006 Mexican p bass, with a hard shell case, today off Craigslist for $280. Hardly a scratch on it, too! Very nice, I’m glad I passed on the protone earlier. It sounds great, I think I might keep it strung up with round wounds even...dunno. This is my first Fender badged bass, so it’s kinda cool in that aspect too (though it’s not any better than my VM IMO).
