I'm just curious to know if it's common or I'm an exception among bass players (a saurus ?!!!) to take care about the same bass for twenty years, playing a lot with it, and still being in love with it. I bought my Ibanez MC 924 (better known as Musician) in the early 80's. It was made on march 1981. I think that this beautiful thing shines again both for refined liuthery and its sound even though new top brands and hi end products are in the market. I noticed also that nowadays changing instrument is very frequent. What are your opinions about? Thanks.
