This thread is somewhat related to the "What bass do you regret ever buying or selling?" thread, but distinct enough to warrant its own thread. Here is my example: At the beginning of 2013, I bought a Squier Vintage Modified Mustang Bass (and subsequently sold my Squier Standard Jazz Bass) hoping that the short-scale neck would solve my problems (straining my hands on a long-scale neck). To keep a long story short-scale, it helped at first, but I began to despise the bass in the long run. It's a well-made bass and has a good tubby sound, but it wasn't cutting it for a majority of the music I was playing and the neck was even more uncomfortable than the Squier Jazz Bass. Last week, I ordered an SX medium-scale Jazz Bass and upon receiving it in the mail a few days ago, I felt like a born-again bass player. Not only was the neck just right for my hands, but I regained the tonal versatility that the Squier Jazz Bass had. However, my Mustang Bass won't be neglected and I now like and use it as a secondary bass for certain music. It made me wonder if anybody here has a bass that they wouldn't want as a primary bass but love having as a secondary bass. If anybody has a bass of this nature, share your story on this thread.
