My GF bought me a CCB last xmas cause she thought it looked cewl. Usually I play 6stg and tenor sax and harp. I have fallen in love with the whole URB sound and vibe, the instrument, the gear etc. I also like the erotica of having an instrument nestled in your crotch. Another thing I like about the bass is the people that play em. Very little frontman/guitar ego BS. I have encountered a little "snotty attitude" from jazz and classical guys but they're entitled with the woodshed time they put in. Haven't picked up a strat since I started on URB.
