I'm not really a bass player but I have fun pretending on occasion I've always been a P-Bass fan. There's something about the pure simplicity of the slab body, 1 pickup, and a neck. Raw power. I've got a cool '73 P that has be re-setup like it was originally - LaBella flatwound strings. Old-school and cool.

Yeah, I'd love to check out a TBX. It's been years since I've held one.
