I bought my Warmoth Telebass exactly 7 years ago and it's been my no 1 bass all these years. But during this time my taste in basses has changed, and i'm not so sure what to do with my bass. Alot of basses has come and gone thru the years but i tend to hold on to this bass. One of the reasons is that it was a gift from my father, which passed away a few years ago. The thing is, i'm not so sure if i like the estethical shapes of the body, neck and head and the overall sound. Thru years of bass testing i've come to like "ergonomic" basses like the Ibanez SR which is lighter in weight, has a flatter neck shape and offers a 2/3-band EQ instead of my bass V/T controls. I bought a Washburn 5 string RB bass a couple of months ago, and to be honest, it fits me like a glove. It has that sound i want, nice body shape, love the neck and the 5th string is what i have been looking for. The positive things with my bass is that it holds the tuning superb, the intonation is perfect and it has a nice old school neck which produces nice bends. And when i try Fender basses and look-a-likes in stores i always come back to my Warmoth thinking it has the best sound for these kind of basses, but still, it doesn't offer My sound and tone. Should you keep a bass that doesn't play the way you like it but is emotionally connected to you? I don't want this thread to be a discussion of the ups and downs of the telebass, i would like to get objective views of my gear struggle.
