So I've been thinking about this recently. Will the custom shop, master built and other high end basses get better with time? I know some people don't get the whole vintage thing but having played and owned some new and vintage basses I prefer real deal vintage...pre CBS fenders in particular. Never having played one in the 50s or 60s I can't really compare how they were new to now. Are they better now than when they rolled off the line in Fullerton? Now one of the reasons I believe they are better is because of the aging of the wood. I have no scientific evidence to back me up but there's something about the way they feel and weigh and resonate (Yeah, I know who cares how it resonate its an electric bass) that is just plain superior to basses being made today. So will we be saying in 2063 that the AVRI series are the best or master built or Sadowsky for that matter? Don't want to start a flame war about vintage basses, but just curious to see what you guys think are some of the potential outcomes for bass "maturing" in the next 50 years.
