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.
Top notch quality. I'm excited to be the proud owner of a piece of musical history.
Features are exactly what I was expecting, top notch! The case was a nice bonus feature.
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
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
Mine is the 3 tone sunburst, which, in my opinion is one of the best looking color schemes available.
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.
Really didn't have to do any adjusting right from the box, which is something that happens very rarely.
