ok, i know that there were some very high dollar basses floating around in the late 70's early 80's until present day. but which modern day boutique bass has the ability to recreate the sound of an old school p or j bass? alembic, wal, zon, wariwick, ken smith, tobias, stingrays...? i mean im sure there are quite a few to list. also for those who have the high dollar basses, do you prefer to string them with rounds or flats? how do you use them, in the sense of newer amps vs vintage amps, overdrive/fuzz, passive or active, so on and so forth.
