I try really hard not to judge a bass purely by its cosmetics. But I just cant get over binding on the body of a bass- on the neck I quiet like it. But just cant get behind it on the body (and feel its slightly uncomfortable). One day this may change (and I hope it does) as I want to only judge a musical instrument by how it plays and sounds- but I cant help but fall into the trap of listening with my eyes. Am I alone? what is the general consensus?
