the p-bass shape is old, worn out, mundane. Nothing they do to it will make a difference regardless if it is now back to a PJ or JJ or PP. It is still the same stupid body that has been overused by every Tom, Dick, and Harry company out there for 30 years.
if they came out with a cheap bolt-on Kelly like the old KB1, or a RR shape for less than 500 the masses would scramble to pre-order.
DE and his fanboys do not impress me, and DE did NOT influence Jackson to "make" a concert again or a kellyBird. they already did it and said "Dave go play this on a video at NAMM so the fanboys get excited, maybe we will do a limited run of 100 and charge 4grand"....
Anything with HIS name on it is still gonna be in the 3-4grand category and always will.
You want a KellyBird like the one DE was messing with? go fill out the order form and have the CS make it. No magic about it.
You wanna wait till a cheap Indian bolt on comes around for 399.95? -- keep-a-waiting
if DE was such a fan of his own "creations", he would be using a JS3V on stage, not his neckthru.
