Is it me, or am I the only one who likes nice, cheap, solid colored, normal shaped, bolt-on basses like Ibanez Soundgears? Solid colors are nice, easy maintainence, etc., and the natural finishes, oils and stains just look a little to classy for me. Give me a nice solid white, black, or dark red, black hardware and I'm more than happy! Normal shapes, come on! Singlecuts, especially on basses, in my opinion are just wrong! Maybe a Les-Paul shaped singlecut, but some of the Elricks and whatnot are not exactly my bag of tea. Now everyone debates Bolt-on vs. Neck-through but I'm a bolt on guy, less sustain, I'm not playing jazz, so I don't need it! Cheap instruments are great, they're practically disposable. My weapon of choice is a $400 Ibanez SR400, and if anything goes wrong, I'll just buy another, I'm not afraid to modify them...hell I just scalloped the top five frets on one of them! Drop in a pair of EMG's or Bart's or Duncan's and I'm set, and maybe even a nice bridge. At least this way, I can get used to the feel of one bass, while having tons of toys at my disposal! I seem a bit out of place loving my cheap import bolt-ons in a world of Fenders, Warwicks and other odd guitars. Just my little opinion, I figure it's time to complain a bit , I've been in this wonderful place long enough!
