Congratulations again for the well-deserved award, and another heart-felt thank you to Sheldon for this magnificent instrument that he and his crew crafted for me! My order went in on the coat-tails of Zoomie's reverse Super P5 (one number separates our respective serial numbers) and was delivered, quite serendipitously, on Christmas Eve.

Sonic Blue over swamp ash with reflected Christmas tree lights:

The cool new headstock:

The neck is P-bass perfection with (naturally) a bit more 'meat' than the SJ. After journeying all the way from Saskatoon, the strings were in tune with each other and uniformly just a bit flat from pitch. Setup was perfect. I lowered the E/A pickup segment by one turn of the wrench (both bolts) and raised the D side of the D/G segment by on-half of a turn to fine-tune the string volume balance for my taste. [u:255f041f]All[/u:255f041f] of its parts resonate nicely together with no discernible dead notes. At 7lbs, 4oz, this is now my lightest bass. Big, fat, clear precision tone 'in spades' from the FD-P4! So responsive to touch and attack like all of my Super series instruments.. :mrgreen:

Thanks Ken. Glad you're enjoying the bass. The guys at the shop have all worked really hard to make these basses everything they can be.

Gorgeous bass, Ken!

I've waited a long time to order a new bass, and it is fitting that it is a Super P. Can't wait!

Enjoy that bass. She's a beaut Clark!

Absolutely, Sheldon. All of their hard work shines in the realization of your re-imagination of the Precision bass!

Yup. Not the first time I've done so, and probably not the last... :wink:
