As I've been on these boards for quite a while I've noticed a recurring phenomenon of bass snobbery. Best way to find it is to say something like "you can't go wrong with a p-bass." Then duck and cover. Just wait for the Spector, Warwick, Musicman contingent to attack. Of course, you can get the same reaction with "why would anyone play a p-bass?" Then watch the Fender loyalists go on the offensive. "Leo made it 60 years ago and it's still perfect..." As I get older and watch these flame wars, and political flames and sports flames and on and on it strikes me how ignorant people can sound when they can't accept a different opinion. A healthy conversation is awesome, but spouting stupidity is exhausting. I have 3 completely different P-basses and a wonderful Jazz. I don't feel any reason to bash any boutique, knock off, cheapo or high priced bass. At the end of the day, we are all bassists with different tastes, skill sets, needs and wallets. Support your fellow bassist - don't beat him or her up for approaching the same game with a different style.
