I was playing my OLP stingray last night and I was thinking how my tastes have changed in basses since I began playing. I used to love Yamaha basses and have several of them. I hated Ibanez, the Thunderbird, and OLP/Musicman basses. For both tonal and looks. Now all my Yamahas are gone and I now love Ibanez, Thunderbirds and OLP. They all now feel great to play and I love them all tonally. I thinks its Ironic what I once hated, I now like. While some people will stick to playing one or two brands of bass once they find what they like. Maybe I am strange, Idk.
