When I'm on the forum i look at all the different specs saying to myself how much i want X in a bass, or that i just HAVE to have the latest X and try out (Insert Brand Here).
One day i need active, next day I'm GASSING for a passive.
I tell myself that i like these pickups over those or that my neck has to be 34" scale, then the next I just have to have that extra inch so that i can get the "full" sound from my strings.
When it comes to playing, however, all of that goes away.
If i have a bass in my hands that's all i care about once I've picked it up. It could be four, five, six, eight strings, or whatever amount.
