I've been jamming at a rehearsal studio with a group of friends for the last few weeks, which has been a great learning experience. Funny thing is that I've brought my various basses there for the sessions, but the one bass the guys in my group keep telling me to bring back is my Fender Marcus Miller Jazz Bass, my least expensive instrument, even with a U-Retro upgrade. They said that they love the way it sounds and hangs in mix. Does anyone else here own a lot of nice gear but wind up mostly playing their least expensive stuff? Makes me consider selling everything else... Nah, just kidding.
