nope. read loads of reviews, watched videos and checked the specs. If I don't like it I can return within 30 days.

Please indicate whether I should buy.

pull the trigger.

when you get it, swap the bridge for a black one, and paint the headstock black.

the mexican fender version is $800 and has fewer features. The american version is $2,000 and is what turned me on to the pj active/passive setup. Both have a modern P bass neck which is OK but still thicker than I'd like. The Sire model has a thin jazz neck.

I've watched tons of videos universally everybody is amazed by the build quality and finish considering the price tag.

Why not just buy a used Fender? These have been around forever. These imitations always stuff 1000 features into their stuff, like fancy binding, eq, etc but usually none of it works as well as a simpler better made instrument. Itís like those cheap Chinese acoustics with all the bling and built in tuners that sound like shit compared to a workhorse Martin. Idk at least play it first

To the contrary.

There is so much buzz about these basses right now that people will buy them used over sticker to avoid the month wait to buy one new.

https://www.talkbass.com/threads/sire-p7-tobacco-sunburst.1317862/ (listed at $520 + shipping and sold same day. New it's $499 incl. shipping).

These basses came about because Marcus Miller, whose signature fender jazz bass was literally their top of the line, wanted to make quality instruments but without the high sticker price of a fender.

This model has the exact same features as the fender american elite p bass, which costs $2,000.

I agree with you that there are some garbage chinese made instruments, but I don't think your general observation applies to this specific brand. There are loads of independent reviews and literally all of them say they cannot believe how good the quality of the instrument is all around.

This looks like some chinese ripoff version they sell on amazon (even though I believe bloodacre and its probably nice).

When OP is playing live he will look like someone playing an amazon chinese ripoff though HTH

well a regular p bass has just the one pickup, volume and tone knob.

this is a PJ meaning it has a p bass pickup and a jazz bass bridge pickup. it also has a built in EQ for active mode. Fender does make a version of this bass as well, but like I said above, the mexican model doesn't have as good a built in preamp, the american model is $2,000 and neither has a jazz style neck which I prefer.

I don't care what I look like playing it. People will be distracted by my handsome face anyway.

The only comparable one is the first. The others are straight p basses. I do not want just a p bass without the jazz pickup, pickup blend and preamp. all are more expensive and used.

holy shit $499 including shipping and no tax. There has to be a catch. The company is either losing money in the short term hoping to establish a reputation or literally making the instruments with slave labor.
