As I mentioned in another thread, I’ve recently sold my Classic Vibe Jaguar and there’s now an empty space in my stable.
I’m looking for a PJ for some heavy rock fun.
Think Sabbath to Guns n Roses.
So just for fun (and possibly make me aware of options I hadn’t considered) I’ll pull together a list of options here.
What else should go onto the list (or what should come off)?
- Aesthetics are (very!!!) important.
- It must be a P-J.
- Must be available in Europe - so unfortunately no Japanese or USA only editions.
- Probably a 4 string, but 5 is not an impossibility.
- Passive or Active - no real preference here.
The shortlist currently consists of
1] Fender Duff McKagan DLX P Bass
2] Fender American Performer is another option here for ballpark the same price.
3] Warwick RB Streamer NT I 4
4] ESP LTD Surveyor ´87
Fender Aerodyne Jazz Bass (Modded with EMG Geezer Butler pickups)
ESP LTD AP-4
ESP LTD RB-1004 in Maple Burl (If I could find one)
ESP LTD RB-1004 in Spalted Maple (love the spec but not the looks)
Sandberg California VT
BC Rich Mockingbird
I’ll edit this first post as new contenders are discovered!
