I think I will pass on the Deluxe, keep my Standard and keep searching for the active tone I am looking for to augment my regular tone.
My new Ric isn't it (even though it is so very cool!) so maybe a Sting Ray is the next in line.
I love GAS!! And since I'm only 51' I still have time!!
Yup. Leo invented the P bass in '51. Then he improved it in '57. And he never came up with anything to improve it again after that.
Until he became part of MusicMan, that is. And then again as the L in G&L...
I do love my '66 P. But, I think I might like the sound of my SR5 better. And most days, I'd actually pick up my SB-2 before either of those other two.
Thank Leo for so many wonderful choices!
