Let me explain. I am not anti-anything, really. I like nice basses as much as the next guy. All the woods, finishes, 12 strings, etc. are just fine and dandy. The thing is, I think I have reached sensory overload. I don't think my brain can handle any more of these gold and blue multi layer, gazillion string monsters. I was looking through some of the pics posted by NAMM attendies (sincerely, thanks for taking the time to share with us) and found myself relieved to see a pic of a 4 string jazz bass. Sunburst, no fancy wood, just a bass. Just curious if anyone else is feeling this way of if it's just me.
