A five-string P-style bass with modern touches.

Van Nuys, CA (January 10, 2012) -- Xotic introduces the Xotic XP-1T. The Xotic XP-1T is made of medium-weight alder for solid low and low-mid range tones. Xotic improved the neck joint and heel cutaway to significantly improve playability in higher positions. The XP-1T's neck is a hand carved C-shape and finished off with Xotic XP-OG1 oil rub. The fit and finish are designed for smooth and stress free playing.

The rosewood fingerboard is carefully selected and features a 10" radius for a more modern feel. Frets are Jescar FW9665, providing proper height and pitch stability.

Xotic used Alnico 5 magnets and an original coil design that does capture the solid and heavy sound of the P style bass in a 5-string format. Like all Xotic basses, our Tri-Logic Preamp bring it all together with many tone shaping possibilities.

Fender Player Plus Meteora HH


After many decades of sticking with flagship body shapes, Fender spent the last several years getting more playful via their Parallel Universe collection. The Meteora, however, is one of the more significant departures from those vintage profiles. The offset, more-angular profile was created by Fender designer Josh Hurst and first saw light of day as part of the Parallel Universe Collection in 2018. Since then, it has headed in both upscale and affordable directions within the Fender lineup—reaching the heights of master-built Custom Shop quality in the hands of Ron Thorn, and now in this much more egalitarian guise as the Player Plus Meteora HH.

A blind horse wouldn’t be impressed, but this beautiful, double-horned instrument with one-of-a-kind engravings helped make luthier Tony Zemaitis famous.

Though they never reached the commercial success of some of their peers, the Faces have no doubt earned a place as one of the seminal rock ’n’ roll bands of the late ’60s and early ’70s. Combining influences as varied as instrumental funk à la the Meters, traditional folk music, and a heavy dose of rhythm and blues, the Faces brand of rock ’n’ roll can be heard in some way or another in the music of countless bands that followed. After the Faces folded in 1975, all five members went on to continue making great music, but their chemistry together was undeniable.
