Some people seem to love Fender basses, but I'm not sure if I want to. My Jazz bass copy can get a lot of feedback unless both pickups are on, and I don't like the sound from the bass. Also, the Precision bass seems too simple. Perhaps Fender isn't for me. I once tried out an active Yamaha bass. It sounded pretty good. Also, I've heard some good stuff about the G&L L-2000 basses. In fact, in general, maybe I should use active Fender-style basses (yes, that would include the Stingray). Anyone else think that Fender isn't for them?
