I am in a pickle over my basses,even after playing for over 20 years. My first basses were pretty rubbish,Hondo,Westone,a Gibson copy,then an Ibanez SR1000e which was a fantastic bass in most aspects. Then I moved onto a MIM Jazz which I still have and used for a decade.Very good bass and love it. As soon as I could afford a MIA Jazz I got one and was more happier with it than the MIM. Then I borrowed a P bass for a while and quite liked what it had to offer in the neck,its playability especially. Not so much its tone. When I could afford a MIJ 70's P I got my own,light !!!! as hell, great to play,and the guys in the band loved it ! So it became my main bass even though I struggled to like the P tone. Next I got GAS again and bought a Warwick Star Bass.....and WOW I love everything that this bass has to offer and have been using it every weekend ever since.Although I felt the gui**** and Drummer preferred the P tone. So the last 4 gigs I went back to the P bass,It does sound good with the band and again its nice to play,but "I" like the Warwicks tone, its dead easy to play and I like how the Warwick sounds even and full anywhere on the neck and the Fenders dont achieve this at all. Last night I started with the P ,swapped to the Warwick during the break,and went back to the P for the last half hour.The gui**** said afterwards he really likes the P Bass.The Warwick is cool but the P bass is better,and has character. My dilemma,the band likes the P but not so much the Warwick which I love it to bits. What do I do,what would you do ? Tell the band too bad,Im using the Warwick or shut up and put up and go back to the P for gigging ?? Sorry for the novel(and hope I posted this in the correct place) but its really bugging me and I feel Im back to square one.
