I have bought several basses over the years to try to cop some of my heroes tones. Bought my first Ric to try to get the Geddy/Squire tones only to be disappointed that it didnt sound like theirs (still good just not what I hoped for). Same with my Spector. Sounds and feels good but doesnt get the Queensryche thing. The only bass I have bought that did cop a famous persons tone I admired is my Aria Pro SB1000 to get the John Taylor tone. It sounds just like his with no processing. Now I know what you may say...I should have my own and not worry about getting someone elses tone but I think most of us have done it at one time or another. How many of you have bought a bass to sound like your hero only to be disappointed?
