Sound Quality
I've used the P5 once in a practice setting and plan on using it for our next live venue. My practice rig consists of a Yorkville 2 X 10 combo; my live rig contains an RBI, Crest CA-6, and Acme B-4. I'll reserve these opinions for a later date.
The P5 is built solidly and should withstand the wear 'n tear of normal playing. All the hardware is firmly secured and adjusted correctly. As far the finish goes, time will tell. A thick coat of polyurethane on this bass would have been criminal; I'm willing to live with a few nicks, blems, and abrasions. As reliable as the P5 appears, I never venture out without a back-up.
General Comments
This is my 5th (and hopefully last) 5 banger. I also use a Status Stealth 5, David King headless 5, Modulus Genesis 5, and a Peavey Cirrus 5. If you're considering a well-built custom bass, I strongly encourage you to visit his website: www.cbbasses.com. Cliff is a joy to work with and I look forward to acquiring another CB or JP bass in the not-too-distant future.
