And Now For Something Completely Different

  1. I have a Fender MIA P-bass and am looking for a second bass. Not necessarily a back-up but a 2nd that is more versatile in tone that can cover a wider range of styles than the P. I've been looking at the Spector Legends and G&L Tributes, both of which offer a variety of tone variations, particulary the Trib. What do you think, opinions, I'm really looking to have 2 basses that would cover any style of music from jazz/blues Billy Holiday - Ray Charles - Sinatra to contemporary. I know the P will cover almost any classic rock and much blues but IF you could only carry 2 basses, which 2 would cover most, if not all, the bases. Also, would I be even more versatile it I went with a 5'er?
