General What is your overall opinion of this product? Just recently got my P and boy oh boy is this thing BAAADDD! The tone, the looks the playability. Fist things first, I got a American Active Deluxe which was a visually stunning piece of equipment but just was not the tone I was looking for. So, I tried one of these American Standard P's. Glad I did! Personally, I like the feel of the P necks better than the J necks. The fingerboard on the P has the rolled edges which is a real nice feature. Normally when I get a new bass I have to go through a list of tweaks to get it to my liking, however, with this P I simply took it out of the case, examined it and felt there were no tweaks needed. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? Top notch quality. I'm excited to be the proud owner of a piece of musical history. Features Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features? Features are exactly what I was expecting, top notch! The case was a nice bonus feature. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Neck has the rolled edges, which is something I have never experienced until this P, which makes a huge difference in playability. I have bigger hands, so, I really like the feel of the P necks Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? For only having a master volume and tone control, this thing has a considerably wide range of tones from bright and punchy to dark and sizzling. Love the tone Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Mine is the 3 tone sunburst, which, in my opinion is one of the best looking color schemes available. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? Considering the price of the American Active Deluxe J which I simply was not too huge of a fan of the tone compared to this, which I am a huge fan of the tone, I'd say I got what I was expecting. Playability How was the action out of the box? Really didn't have to do any adjusting right from the box, which is something that happens very rarely.
P-Bass at it's Best

General What is your overall opinion of this product? High quality P-Bass Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? From the tuners to the included case, Outstanding. Features Are the features on the product what you were expecting? What are your favorite features? Graphite stiffened neck, Custom Shop PU, and the pure simplicity of a P-Bass. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Neck is silky smooth. Body super comfy. Overall weight, light for a P-Bass. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? Custom Shop PU has great full, clear, smooth tone. Thick and mellow when played in front. Treble and bright played behind PU. Volume and tone controls very responsive to tweaking. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Satiny smooth neck and awesome gloss burst body. The Piece match on the body is seamless. Looks like one piece. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? If you want a P-Bass and can justify the price for an American made instrument. This is great buy. The quality components and craftsmanship are top notch plus you get super nice case included. Playability How was the action out of the box? The set up out of the box was very good and perfectly playable as is. I tweaked it to my taste. The neck relief was perfect.
